May 19, 2PM Worm Composting Workshop
Event Location:Downtown Farmers Garden
Join Gainesville Urban Homesteaders, Florida Organic Growers, and Gainesville Compost at the Downtown Farmers Garden on May 19 for an educational and fun worm composting workshop!
Vermicomposting (i.e. using earthworms to break down food waste) is a great composting solution for those with a small amount of food waste or those who do not have the option to have a large compost pile -- like people in apartments or small dwellings.
This workshop is free and open to the public, but participants will have the option to purchase materials to build and take home their own worm bins.
Cost of materials (optional):
$20 for 1 pound of composting worms
$30 for worm bin building materials
The workshop will feature:
- A lesson on worms and their remarkable composting abilities
- A workshop on how to build your own worm bin
- A demonstration of how to use earthworm castings (i.e. worm poop) in the garden
If you would like to pre-order materials for a worm bin -- payment may be made the day of the event -- please fill out this registration form by May 13: http://gainesvillecompost.com/worm-workshop/
We look forward to seeing you!
Your friends at the Downtown Farmers Garden,
