Herbal Work Study: Vermicomposting says
(8:00 a.m. sign-in).

The first two hours will be spent weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden. The last hour will be spent learning about using earthworms to compost garden waste.

I will have cold water and bug spray (if needed) available, you bring your favorite hand tools for weeding and grooming (soil knives, Cape Cod weeders, old kitchen knives, trowels, pruners, gloves, etc. No hoes or rakes needed, though).

Everyone will go home with a handout that includes tips and general information – if you would like to take a small worm bin home with you, you will need to bring $3 to cover the cost of supplies.

Please arrive at the horticulture building in the south end of the parking lot between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. The group will leave the building promptly at 8:30 a.m.

Please dress appropriately. Layered clothing is suggested for this time of year.

Please note: this learning opportunity is ‘purchased’ via a barter system: you must work the first two hours (8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.) to attend the last hour of class, making this a free event.

If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla at 901-636-4134.
