Worm Composting, presented by UC Master Gardeners Alice Burns and Patrizia Guccione.

Don’t have room or time for a traditional composting system or only require small amounts of compost?  Worm composting, known as vermicomposting, is the practice of using worms to turn your kitchen scraps into a rich soil amendment for your plants.

Vermicomposting is remarkably easy and can be done within a very small amount of space.  Join UC Master Gardeners Alice Burns and Patrizia Guccione to learn how to build a worm bin, where to find worms, what to feed them, and how to maintain a healthy worm compost bin. Participants will receive all the information necessary to establish a worm composting system and will take home a mini-worm compost cup as a starter..

There will be time for questions and answers after the presentation.  No charge.
