“Tuesday, October 2, 2018 – 10AM – Vermicomposting & Black Gold (Worms Eat My Food Waste). Northbrook United Methodist Church put on by Northbrook Garden Club
Join Sarah Sanford from GoGreen Northbrook for a Hands-On Workshop where you can learn about vermicomposting or actually build a worm bin. It is the fun and easy way to create fertilizer known as black gold and reduce your environmental impact by composting.
Either come to learn & watch or participate in the workshop. For the workshop, you will need to assess how much food waste you will put into the bin and how much room you have for a bin. Keeping the bin in or near your kitchen will make it easiest to drop off the food waste for the worms. Some people put their bin under the sink, in the laundry room, or in the garage.
Bring 2 bins:
The recommended bin size is at least 16” x 16” x 30”. Bigger is better, but if you don’t have much room, smaller is fine too. No smaller than 2 shoe boxes.
They must set inside each other, one with a good lid.
They do not have to be the exact same size or in perfect shape.
Please source used bins from sources such as Goodwill to reduce plastic use.
The outside bin should be water proof, but the inside bin can be imperfect and made of anything that can be drilled into and will hold food waste, newspaper, black gold and worms.
Worms and newspaper will be provided, as well as help to build the worm bin.”
