Large Scale Vermicomposting: a Value-Added Farm Process
Date: June 27, 2016
Location: 3181 Pollock Rd. Grand Blanc, MI 48439
Join us as we explore Vermicomposting; a managed composting method utilizing earthworms to efficiently process organic waste material, thereby converting it into a 100% natural fertilizer and soil amendment for use in crop production. We will learn from Amy Freeman and Jesse Raudenbush as they guide us through the process of design, implementation, and caring for a vermicomposting system, ensuring a healthy worm environment.
Primary workshop component includes digging the vermicomposting system while we learn all about the system of composting with worms.
