Worm Bin Boot Camp
with Trisha Smith
Looking for a fun and easy way to turn vegetable scraps into plant food? Join Jock Robie (The Worm Bin Guy) for this hands-on workshop and learn to construct and set up, maintain and harvest a worm bin. Jock will also discuss harvesting worm castings and vermicompost for gardening and houseplants, as well as how to make and use “worm tea." 10 participants will go home with a populated worm bin; everyone will go home with more knowledge and enthusiasm for vermiculture! Jock Robie is a retired chemical engineer and has documented his process of designing, building, and using worm bins to compost kitchen waste since 2011. His worms live in 40 bins and process close to 35 pounds of kitchen scraps each week. Visit Jock’s blog at mainelywormbins.blogspot.com to learn more about his vermiculture methods.
