Ready to take your home gardening to the next level? Want to compost but don’t have room? Looking for a year round source of fertilizer? Vermiculture, or worm composting, may be the answer for you. Newport News Master Gardener, Dale Timmer, will be hosting a Vermiculture workshop at Go Green. Learn about the benefits of raising worms in your own home and walk away with your own complete worm composting bin. Your kids will LOVE this workshop! A link will be provided to show you how to assemble your kit.
The cost to participate in this workshop is only $25 per bin, and will be held at our Go Green 2021 event on September 11th, 2021, at the Brittingham Mid-town Center. There will be two workshops held...11:00 am and at 01:15 pm. You may register below. If you prefer to pay by check, make it out to NNMGA and send to the address below.
