All About Worms Workshop - City of San Diego

Vermicomposting (worm composting) is an environmentally-friendly way to turn food waste into nutrient-rich castings for your garden. Learn how easy it is to compost with red wiggler worms at this interactive presentation.

Join Solana Center for this workshop to discover why red wiggler worms are composting superstars! Vermicomposting has a benefit for everyone, whether you want to divert kitchen scraps from the landfill, compost in small spaces, or create a natural fertilizer for your plants. This workshop will teach you all about how to get started and maintain a happy home for red wiggler worms.
