Join us for a free workshop at the Co-op run by Green Venture & learn all about #vermicomposting. Bring exceptional growth to your veggie garden by using this composting technique which can be done from the comfort of your own home – even in small spaces!

Vermicompost is the product of the composting process using various species of worms, usually red wigglers, white worms, and other earthworms, to create a heterogeneous mixture of decomposing vegetable or food waste, bedding materials, and vermicast.

Kids and families are welcome. Tell your friends! After the workshop, Green Venture will be around to talk about their upcoming Eco Stars Summer #Camp for kids age 7-12. http://greenventure.ca/community/camps/
