Vermiculture Class

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.
