Waste Not the Rot; Garden Green with Worms

Take those vegetable trimmings and banana peels out of the trash and let them rot to your benefit with an indoor composting worm bin.  Sarah Archer will share her years of worm composting experience as she teaches a number of indoor composting workshops in Michigan. During the hands-on workshop participants will put together a worm bin while learning how to successfully maintain it.  This fun and educational method of composting with worms, called vermicomposting, has been used in homes, classrooms, and offices across the country as a method of reducing the amount of food waste thrown out with the garbage or put down the drain. The process results in a rich source of plant nutrients, coveted by gardeners, that replaces the need for chemical fertilizers.  Worm bin composting is a healthy choice for you and the planet and will have people asking, “How does your garden grow so well?” Sign up today to learn how to put the worm’s voracious appetite to work for you!  Pre-registration is required and fees vary per host location.  Workshop fee includes bin, red worms, bedding material, care supplies, worm bin care guide and post workshop support.  Upcoming Wonder of Worms – Indoor composting workshops:
