21 Acres Class: Worm Bin 101 – Oct 24

Introduction to Vermiculture

Worm bins are a great way to compost for people who can’t have or don’t want a regular compost. They are versatile enough to be used indoors or outside, can be large or small scale, and can be used year round. Worm bins produce wonderful finished soil and “worm tea” that are great for the garden or potted plants, and the extra worms are a treasure coveted by both gardeners and fishermen alike. Additionally, the bins themselves can be purchased commercially, or made at home by your average do-it-yourselfer.

This classroom instruction and discussion covers the basics of what worm bins are and how they work. We will discuss how to set up and maintain them, and what your worms need to stay happy and producing well for you. The class will also include a discussion of different worm bin styles and their strengths and weaknesses in order to give you a good idea of what options might work best for your particular situation. By the end of the class you’ll have a good understand of whether or not worm bins are a good option for you, and how to set up and maintain one of your own.
