Session Date: 4/9 (7PM - 9PM)

Instructor: Mary Tynan, UConn Certified Master Gardener, URI Master Composter and Recycler Certificate. For decades she has worked in the field of Education and creating horticultural projects. These projects have included garden design and implementation, and the collection of kitchen waste from the school lunchroom for vermicomposting projects.

Description: This one night class will focus on Vermicomposting as a most efficient method of taking care of your kitchen waste. Participants will learn some in depths facts about Esenia Fetida, a composting warm which is known to eat it's weight in a day. A good estimate would be that a pound of red wrigglers will eat about five pounds of kitchen waste in a week, under the right conditions. The by-product of this process is "black gold" which will enhance your plant health beyond your wildest dreams. Participants will make and take home with them, a composting bin and bedding, ready to become a friendly environment once you order and receive your worms. You will receive information on how to order and add composting worms, since there is still a risk to shipping them this early in spring since they do not like cold weather!

Fee: $15.00 registration plus $10 materials = $25.00 Total
