Vermicomposting and Worm Bin Workshop

November 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Vermicompost is a natural soil amendment (worm castings) that is great for your garden. Living worms can be kept in a plastic bin in the kitchen, and will transform newspaper and household food waste into nutrient-rich vermicompost. It’s a great way to recycle household trash into landscaping treasure, with minimal effort!

During this presentation, Betsy Spetich, Recycling and Reuse Specialist for the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, will discuss the whys and hows of composting with worms and demonstrate how to build a bin. Reservations are required. Register for the lecture only ($15 members/ $25 non-members) or for the lecture and building your own bin ($30 members/$40 non-members) online at http://www.garvangardens.org/purchase_tickets/default.aspx or call 800-366-4664.
