In this hands-on workshop, participants will make their own tidy and efficient indoor composting bin specifically designed for composting in apartments or other indoor spaces. The workshop includes everything you need to construct your own bin, including worms! Learn all you need to know to recycle your food waste, care for your worms, harvest the compost, and feed your plants. Public school teachers get $10 off! Worm bins make great gifts, so each attendee can make and take two worm bins for only $20 more.
