Vermiculture Class

Presented at the 12th Annual Desert Garden Community Day on October 28, 2017


Vermicomposting Class

9:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. George J. Podolsky, Volunteer Services Coordinator, Riverside County Department of Waste Resources

This class teaches residents about vermicomposting, a composting method where worms convert food scraps into two of the best amendments on earth: worm castings, a fancy name for worm poop; and worm tea, a liquid fertilizer derived from either castings or the leachate collected from a worm bin. Residents learn how to care for the worms, make bedding, and harvest a worm bin.

Make-Your-Own Worm Bin Workshop

Following the Vermicomposting class, there is a hands-on workshop where attendees make their own worm bins to take home. Participants are taught how to harvest worms and receive enough worms to start their bin. Click HERE for the supply list. Class size is limited.

You must bring some of your own supplies for this class! Here is a list:
