Worm composting uses worms to create dark crumbly compost from your kitchen and garden waste. It is a great method of recycling organic waste from homes where kitchen waste is the main material to be composted, such as households with small gardens. Join us to discover how to introduce this resource into your garden.
If you haven’t the space for a traditional compost bin, or if you would like to be able to compost the cooked food that may not be able to go in your standard bin, you could find that worm composting is just the thing for you. Humus-rich worm compost is valuable in potting mixes and as plant fertiliser, so even if you do not have a garden at all, you can use it for your houseplants and window boxes.
We think worms are a fantastic little army to help with your garden so we're really excited about getting more people to introduce wormeries into their gardens through this half-day course.
During the afternoon we will cover everything you need to know about wormeries, including:
- How do worms create compost?
- What are the different styles of wormery?
- How to create the optimum conditions for your worms?
- What to feed your worms?
- How to use vermicompost in the garden?
This course will be run by the waste team within the Sustainable Communities Team at Garden Organic who are all real composting gurus. What they don't know about wormeries just isn't worth knowing - they even have a desktop wormery in the office to compost their lunchbox leftovers!
