Event Details

Worm composting
Worm composting
Your backyard soil provides the foundation to your plants - and the healthier your soil, the better your plants will grow! In this course you'll learn how to best care for your soil. We'll cover the practical aspects of soil science, teach how to build compost piles and use worm bins, then help you understand how to most effectively use the resulting composted material in your landscape and edible gardens. In the end, you'll be equipped to harvest your own free compost while reducing the amount of yard and food waste that ends up on trucks and in our landfill. Classes are taught by UC Master Gardeners and Master Composters.

Presenters: Terry Andre, Don Kraft, Lisa Strand
