Lunch & Learn in the Gardens: Introduction to Vermicomposting

September 24, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

FREE! Moore County Master Gardeners Larry Allen and John Bowman will provide a basic introduction to vermicomposting, the process of using worms to recycle food wastes into nutrient-rich soil.  The many benefits of using vermicompost will be identified and the necessary materials needed to start a worm composting will be discussed (a worm bin, bedding, water, food scraps, and composting earthworms).  Finally, recommendations will be provided for what to feed your worms, how to harvest your worm castings, and how to deal with some of the common problems that you may experience in your worm farm.
