Learn how to establish your very own at-home composting system LIVE and in-person at the co-op! A well-maintained worm bin is a great way to reduce waste and create the best compost out there—worm poop! We'll cover the basics of choosing a worm bin, introducing worms, feeding, and harvesting vermicompost.
You'll want to wear clothes that can get messy. We'll be "digging in" for some hands-on worm learning!
Participants are also encouraged to bring a plastic recyclable container so that everyone can go home with their own upcycled microgreen kit using the worm castings we harvest together!
Participants are also encouraged to bring a plastic recyclable container (such as a berry container or takeout container) so that everyone can go home with their own upcycled microgreen kit using the worm castings we harvest together.
Upon Request: A limited number of worm bins and starter worms can be available for purchase, as well as vermicomposting manuals and DIY microgreen grow kits.

ABOUT JULIA LATADY
Julia's passion is in connecting people (especially kids!) to the outdoors and to where our food comes from. Julia worked as an environmental educator for Mass Audubon before building an all-ages education program at a family farm outside of Boston. These days, Julia collects food waste from local cafes and markets to feed her composting crew of red wiggler worms and laying hens in Leverett, MA. She uses the worm castings to grow food year-round and to create microgreen kits so that others can too.
Julia aims to tie her complementary backgrounds in wildlife ecology, nature-based early childhood education, and pottery into her explorations of micro-farming and community education. You can learn more about Julia, her aspiring micro-farm, and what we grow and create at www.mudandmycro.com or follow them on Instagram at MudandMycro.
