Free Worm Composting Workshop

Saturday, December 9, 2017

A free worm composting workshop will be offered at Mt. View Sanitary District’s Administration Building on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 10 am to 12 pm. You will learn how to make your own worm compost. Vermicomposting (“vermi” is Latin for “worm”) is the process of using worms to process organic food waste into nutrient rich soil. Worms eat decaying food waste and produce vermicompost, a very effective soil supplement. The worms will produce both a liquid fertilizer and worm castings (a fancy name for worm poop). Worm poop is the best compost! It is a solid, odor free byproduct of worm digestion. You can collect your worm castings periodically and use them as a soil addition, soil conditioner, or even light mulch.
