Event Title: Lunch & Learn: Vermicomposting
Description: Vermicomposting n. The use of worms to convert organic waste into fertilizer
 
Worms are a great addition to any gardener’s project. Be it to fertilizer indoor plants or your vegetable garden, worms bring many great benefits to your gardening. 
 
North Carolina's estimated 420,000 tons of food waste are buried or burned each year at considerable financial and environmental cost. Instead of discarding your food scraps, you can recycle them with the help of worms. Vermicomposting (worm composting) turns many types of kitchen waste into a nutritious soil for plants. When worm compost is added to soil, it boosts the nutrients available to plants and enhances soil structure and drainage.
 
You will learn the basics of composting using worms:
  • Type of worm to use and basic information about worms
  • Supplies needed and how to build a worm bin
  • What to and what not to feed the worms by using your very own food scraps and the methods of feeding
  • Benefits of worm castings and worm juice.
