Grow your own blue ribbon produce with Black Gold! A fun and educational indoor winter project that produces a pH neutral fertilizer rich in micronutrients thus stimulating plant growth. These topics will be covered: vermicomposting vs composting, selecting the proper composting worm, bin construction and set up, appropriate/inappropriate vermicomposting food. Learn the five "Pearls of Wisdom" for success! The instructor will provide a comprehensive educational resources handout with book recommendations, recommended online videos, worm vendors and university research based links. Bring along your own plastic tote of the following parameters:
-clean with no prior chemicals stored within
-lid snaps securely (some lids do not snap shut)
-most sizes are fine, but a 10-12 gallon similar to the Rubbermaid Roughneck is ideal...
-holes will be drilled in the bottom and a collection container is needed, an old cookie sheet or another plastic bin.
