Free Worm Composting Workshop at Soil Born Farms
Soil Born Farms, Republic Services, and the City of Rancho Cordova are hosting a free worm composting workshop at Soil Born Farms American River Ranch on Wednesday, June 28th, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The class will teach participants the basics of starting, maintaining and harvesting worm compost, which uses various specific species of worms to break down organic matter, such as kitchen scraps and paper materials. Vermicompost, the product of worm composting, is used by small scale farmers and gardeners as a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner. Worm composting also helps divert organic material from landfills. To register, visit www.soilborn.org/events/composting-6-28-17.
