Family Fun: Let's Build a Worm Bin! - County of San Diego

 Registration is closed for this event
Get the family together, put on your hardhats, and learn how to build a home for composting worms! This is Part 1 of our 3-part Family Fun series, "Support Global Worming!" in partnership with Alpine Library.

Join Solana Center for this 1-hour presentation where your family will learn about the magic of vermicomposting and how easy it is to build a home for red wiggler composting worms -- the best pets you will ever have! Vermicomposting (worm composting) is an environmentally-friendly way to turn your food waste into nutrient-rich castings for your plants or garden beds.

Unincorporated San Diego County residents who attend 2 or more workshops in this series will receive a FREE kitchen scrap container! Limit 1 per family.

Join us for the rest of the "Support Global Worming!" Series
