Introduction to Worm Farming

Saturday 1st June 2024

Join us for an immersive experience at the Worm Farm Workshop organised by Nelson Community Compost.

Hands on learning experience covering worm health and vitality, starting your own worm farm, feeding your worms, growing the worm population, and how to use the products of worm castings and to fertilise your own garden. Some worms will be available to purchase at the workshop. Proudly hosted by community compost, a community passionate about sustainable living, compost, and building beautiful soil.

Community Composts mission is to divert food waste from landfill, thereby reducing methane emissions, improve soil health, and promote a more sustainable interaction with our environment. The worm farms that will be used for the event follow this kopapa and help reduce food waste, while building the soil and eliminating the use of agricultural fertilizers. The demonstration aims to empower people to have their own worm farm.
