Wondering how to turn your kitchen scraps into garden gold? This hands-on workshop will teach Dabblers everything you need to know for making your own nutrient-rich worm compost at home. We'll go over the basics of caring for worms, troubleshooting issues and harvesting compost. Then, we'll construct worms bins - come ready to use a power drill and get your hands dirty! You'll go home with your own worm bin and worms so you can get started producing compost that will be ready to add to your garden when spring comes around!
