Clark County's very own resident worm rancher, chicken coop builder and compost maker, Doug Knippel is holding another great vermicomposting (composting with worms) class next week. Keep on reading to get the scoop straight from Doug.
I want to compost with redworms, but...?
This is a class that is suitable for all levels of adult compost enthusiasts. Although if you are a beginner it would be a good idea to read some of the basics about composting on our other pages before you come out. We will cover:
Types of compost and when you should use them
Compost and redworm biology
Compost systems for redworms and other types of compost
Setting up, feeding and harvesting your compost
Compost critters - good, bad and ugly
Common problems and the solutions
How long to compost and how to harvest
and much more.
This class is a little bit of lecture and then hands on or "hands in" to your compost. I think it's a good idea to see what you need before you get started, how it works and with what options. There is a 10 page hand out of information that comes with the class so you don't have to take notes (at least not too many). You must sign up in advance so we know how many copies of handouts to have on hand.
Remember bring lots of questions!!!
Vermicomposting is fun and it's a hobby that can have many questions. If you want be the neighborhood authority on "how to compost with redworms", these are the classes to take. See the tools we use and the systems we have available to make this an effective recycling adventure that anyone can do. .
