Family Gardening Workshop: Composting with Worms

May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This workshop is designed for caregivers and their children!

Join Jock Robie, infamous worm-enthusiast, for a fascinating hands-on workshop on vermicomposting. Vermicomposting is a simple and efficient way to turn kitchen waste into useful soil amendments for your garden, especially for people who live in a small space or would like to compost throughout the winter. Families are encouraged to take this workshop: children of all ages are fascinated by worms! The workshop is limited to 5 participants. Couples and families can register as one. You will take home your own worm-composting bin with live worms inside. Jock will then return on September 7th at 1 pm to assist with your first harvest.

Jock Robie founded Mainely Worm Bins in 2011 after keeping worms for four years. He provides his vermiculture classes as a public service and has presented all over the East Coast between Virginia and Maine.

This workshop is free, but advance registration is required. Space is limited!
