This workshop is geared for those with limited outdoor space or no yard. We'll cover common dilemmas that renters face and discover options for composting your kitchen scraps indoors, as well as possibilities for how to use your finished compost. One popular and accessible method is worm composting using red wiggler worms, which we'll explore in detail. We will discuss choosing a bin, care and feeding of compost worms, troubleshooting, and harvesting the finished worm castings. Sources of worms, where to get a bin, and reference materials will also be covered.
