When I lived in a small apartment in southern California, I composted my kitchen scraps in a box of red worms. It really works! Check out the informative redworm composting program offered at the Gustavus Arb this Saturday:
Composting with Redworms
Saturday, December 7th, 10am
Linnaeus Arboretum, Gustavus Adolphus College
Got worms? Did you know a pound of redworms can eat a couple pounds of food scraps every week? Take composting to a whole new level by letting red worms eat your garbage right in your own home. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to give worm composting a try. Get rid of food scraps, make your own plant fertilizer, and have a constant source of fishing bait too. Program is mostly for adults, but kids are welcome too. Free for Arboretum Members and Gustie students. Cost is $1 per person for non-members (payable at the door). Registration is required by calling 507-933-6184 at least 24 hours before the program.
