On Saturday October 17 from 9 to 10:30 Vermicomposting Workshop in Muskogee sponsored by the Friends of Honor Heights Park Association

Kitchen waste takes up 30% of the landfill according to the experts. A compost pile and a worm composting bin or two would eliminate that burden on landfills.

Friends of Honor Heights Park is sponsoring a worm composting workshop
Saturday, October 17 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
in the Garden Education Room at Muskogee's Honor Heights Park

Learn how to improve your garden while helping the Earth.

Worm composting reduces landfill and provides non-chemical fertilizer for growing flowers, vegetables and herbs.

Participants should bring a plastic container 1 to 3 feet tall and 2 feet long to hold your worms, their food and shredded newspaper bedding.

We will drill holes in your container and provide enough red wriggler worms to start a home system.

In addition to materials on home vermicomposting, Bruce Edwards, Urban Harvest Director for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, will teach commercial worm composting.

Vermicomposting helps keep kitchen waste out of the landfills.

The workshop is a fundraiser for Friends of Honor Heights Park Association.Workshop Fee: Members $15 and Non-members $25.
You can join Friends that day if you want to.
