Workshop on Worm Bins
September 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesday, Sept. 6, Jock Robie from Mainely Worm Bins will be coming to Unity to lead a workshop on worm bins! He is an amazing wealth of knowledge on the topic of Vermiculture and how to care for your voracious red wigglers. He will be bringing all of the materials for ten worm bins to give away for FREE! Nine of those bins will go to the first nine participants to arrive and one will be held for a name-draw at the end.
No need to bring anything more than yourself and possibly a notebook for taking notes. Snacks and juice will be available during the event. You can find more details below.
When: September 6, 6pm-8pm
Where: Volunteer Regional Food Pantry- 180 Depot St., Unity
What: How to build and care for a home worm bin!
What is a worm bin?!
A home or office worm bin is a fantastic way to make use of kitchen scraps, old newspaper, leaves, and many other materials within a worm’s diet. When properly cared for, the bins do not emit an odor and the worms stay put in their happy homes! After just a short time, typically 3-4 months, the nutrient rich worm castings can be harvested and added to your home garden or indoor plants.
Join us next Wednesday to learn more! Jock Robie has many useful answers and suggestions as well as a very clever and replicable worm bin design.
