About the event
Green Okanagan is hosting an all-inclusive vermi-composting workshop!
What is ‘vermi-composting’? Vermi-composting, or worm composting, uses various worms to turn kitchen scraps and other green waste into a rich soil. Composting in general allows you to divert waste from the landfill and reduce your overall impact, and using worms to do so allows you to compost in a fun way! Vermi-composting systems are small but mighty, making them an awesome solution to those wanting to reduce kitchen and food waste but are restricted by the size of their yard/apartment/etc. If you'd like to learn more about vermi-composting, see the following article from Planet Natural.
What are the benefits? Composting your organic and food waste helps to lessen your environmental impact by diverting this material from the landfill. Instead of creating methane in a landfill, it will turn your organic waste into a nutrient-rich soil! How cool is that?
What will I be doing at the event? GO’s vermi-composting workshop is a hands-on evening where you will be learning all about this form of composting whilst making your own apparatus to take home with you. At this event you will: - Build your own vermi-composting apparatus and learn about it's operation + low-maintenance - Be provided all materials needed (including the worms!) - Learn the ins and outs of zero-waste living
What is the cost? The supplies, instruction, and activities of this event are valued at over $110 per person. You will pay only $50 thanks to the generous donations provided by the Urban Systems Foundation. We are thankful for their support!
*Please note your ticket will include the cost of all materials, the instructors, and processing fees.*
