Worms are Wonderful: Vermicomposting Workshop

WhenSat, September 26, 1:30pm – 3:30pm

WhereBowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve, 1635 River Road, New Hope, PA 18938, United States (map)

Description BHWP Members: $12, Non-members: $16; Registration is required by Thursday, September 24. This is a basic workshop for people new to indoor worm composting. Learn about different types of worms (specifically Eisenia fetida), their life cycle and reproductive system. Then get your hands dirty and create your own vermicomposting bins, adding the appropriate food, bedding and worms. Learn about the care and maintenance of the bin in your home. It’s a lot of fun, a little messy, and you get to play with worms! Bring a dark colored 10 or 18 gallon plastic bin (not translucent) with a lid. Note: these are not outdoor worms; the bin will need to be kept indoors in a temperature range of 55 to 80 degrees. Instructor Susan Harrison has been vermicomposting for 11 years. She is certified as a Penn State Master Gardener, Bucks County Extension, with a focus on entomology and a member of the Martha Washington Garden Club
