Nature Center Taste of Nature Series: Worm Composting

Jamestown, NY – Did you know that worms can convert your food scraps into nutrient-rich compost for your garden?

You can learn how at the Audubon Nature Center’s next Taste of Nature Series class on Tuesday evening, May 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Juliette Enfield from Penn State Cooperative Extension will cover the basics of worm composting, also known as vermicomposting. She will share techniques on keeping a low maintenance and odorless worm compost bin.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about worm biology.
  • Learn how to maintain a worm compost bin indoors and out.
  • Learn how small farms are using worm composting to reduce waste and fertilize crops.
  • Create and take home their very own worm bin with Red Wiggler worms.
     

Bins, worms and some food scraps and bedding will be provided.

Fee is $24 or $18 for Friends of the Nature Center, and class size is limited.
