The Wonderful World of Worms: Worm Composting 101

Alanna Ireland
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(25)
In this one-time class, we will learn about the science of worms, build and set up a small under-sink worm bin, and learn all of the wonderful uses of vermicompost.

Class experience

Students will come away with an understanding of the important role worms play in our environment and learn to use home-made vermicompost on plants in their homes and gardens. 
I have worms!  

 . . . in my worm bin.  I am an avid and experienced organic gardener who is obsessed with vermicomposting. I have used this wonderful "black gold" in my garden and on my jungle of houseplants for over 10 years. I am also an experienced teacher and tutor with a degree in Education. 
1. Two small, plastic containers that will fit under your sink (or where you would like to keep them)
     *Containers should be approximately the same size, with one container able to fit inside the other
     *At least one container should have a lid 
     *If you plan on keeping your bin where it will be exposed to light, do not use a translucent container 
     *I will send you instructions for drilling holes in one of these bins before class
2. Stack of old newspaper
3. Spray bottle with water
4. Handful of dirt
5. Vegetable scraps such as carrot tops, apple cores, potato peels, etc.
6. Bricks, wood blocks, or any item you can find that will hold the top bin several inches from the bottom of the lower bin

Upon enrollment, I will send you instructions for drilling holes in your top bin, resources for ordering red wrigglers, and other suggestions for preparing for class. Before purchasing any items for this class, explore what you have on hand at home or look into local Freecycle or Buy Nothing groups online or on Facebook.
