Set up & maintain a worm farm

Saturday, 24 June 2017 | 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM

worms

A worm farm can be one of the best ways to dispose of food scraps and at the same time produce vermi-juice (worm tea) and vermicast (worm castings) for use on the garden.

Learn how to set up a worm farm and the easiest methods to manage and care for these most hard-working of creatures.

This workshop will cover both the theory and practice of worm farming in a household setting. It will be useful for those wishing to recycle household food waste in order to produce worm products for use in the improvement of soil in gardens and pot plants.

Our tutors are keen worm farmers and teach soil improvement classes to pre-schoolers, school students and community members at Edendale and around the Nillumbik shire.

Discounted worm farms will be available for sale on the day.

Please wear a hat and sunscreen as well as outdoor footwear.
