Black Gold: Home Vermicomposting - How Worm Poop is Good for Your Garden

Learn how worm composting will help your garden! 

Vermicomposting means worm composting, the process of letting worms breakdown material and turning into a nutrient-rich, micro-organism filled compost.

This hands on workshop will explore the benefits of worm castings (yup, that means worm poop!) to the plants in your garden and how to set up a vermicompost system. Called "black gold" by many gardeners because of its amazing benefits, vermicompost is the best natural fertilizer for your garden and you can make it for free right at home!
