Composting with Worms

Saturday, September 26, 2020

Learn how you can compost year round inside your home and become a worm farmer. Participants will build their own worm bin to take home and make into a family project. Red Wigglers will be provided and instructions will be given to create a healthy habitat for the worms to eat your food scraps and reduce your carbon footprint. In order to maintain safe social distancing this program will be conducted outside. There will be an option where you can pick up supplies and we will provide you with resources to build your composting bin from home if you'd prefer. Funds generated from this event will go towards setting up a larger composting system at the Swiss Valley Nature Center to utilize as an educational component to show the public.
