Vermicomposting 101 Class
Apr 01, 2013 03:03PM
Vermicompost is the product or process of composting using worms to create a heterogeneous mixture of decomposing vegetable or food waste, bedding materials, and worm castings, or manure. These castings have been shown to contain reduced levels of contaminants and a higher saturation of nutrients than do organic materials before vermicomposting.
Hassena Kassim (Sena the Worm Whisperer), a certified desert landscaper, will teach a vermicomposting class for beginners from 8:30 to 10 a.m., April 27, at Root Phoenix. Participants will gain the knowledge of how worms work and the different types of vermicomposting systems.
