Description/Notes: 

Vermicomposting (from the Latin word vermis meaning worm) is an efficient and enjoyable method for turning kitchen food scraps into a rich compost. Composting with redworms is becoming popular because it is easy and inexpensive to get started, can be done indoors in a small place and is odorless.

In this class, participants will learn about worm composting and will take home a worm compost bin. Registration is limited to 6 participants.
