Vermicomposting: Create High Quality Compost at Home

June 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Vermicomposting (or composting with worms) is a safe, efficient, year-round and free way to turn kitchen waste into rich, biologically active compost for your garden. In this class we go over all you need to know to successfully make this “black gold.” This class is for people who have never tried vermicomposting before and for people who may want to increase their capacity or volume of home vermiposting. You will learn to avoid common vermiposting mistakes because we provide the broader context of how carbon in composting system works.

Instructor Information: Nick Schneider owns and operates the personal chef company, Thrive Chef Works. He is a prolific backyard fruit and vegetable grower and former market gardener for Farm in the City, St. Paul. He’s been vermicomposing for 13 years and believes vermicomosting is an excellent energy efficient way for homeowners and gardeners to manage their own food carbon footprint while supporting life in the garden.
