Vermicomposting, or raising and composting with worms, is one of the easiest, most effective ways to keep your soil healthy while making the most of what people often throw away.

Worms, or Annelids, are some of the world’s oldest creatures – unchanged by time. They have no bones and are 90% water and still, they shaped our entire environment as we know it. In this class, we get to meet some of our squirmy companions as we discuss vermiculture, or the raising of worms.

We will go over how to keep worms as domestic livestock and some techniques for composting with worms or breeding worms for bait and soil maintenance. Live worms and wormbins will be available for purchase after the class.
