Worm Circus Roundup

A big Thank You to all who made our worm composting workshop on Wednesday a great success -- Thanks to all who helped with the planning, the publicity and the setting up. And Thanks to Will Dewees, our worm expert extraordinaire. Most of all, Thank You to all who attended -- we had our largest audience yet with nearly 40 people!

Will showed the audience that worms need the following to stay healthy and transform food waste into compost:

air  ~~  moisture (but not too much!)  ~~  darkness  ~~  food scraps (no protein)

Read more about the worm composting tips Will presented in today's Post article
