This is an amazing fertilizer and soil conditioner that will make your garden plants healthier and more productive.
You will learn about this method of composting, and build your own simple composting box with the kit included in this course. The kit contains everything you need to begin your vermiculture experience, including worms. The tuition for this workshop is $30, which includes your kit, an exclusive link to an informative presentation about worm composting and how to maintain your worms, and this will be followed by step-by-step video instruction for building your own bin from the workshop kit. The class is limited to 30 participants.
