Wonder of Worms – Nature’s Recyclers
How to create ‘black gold’ for the garden.
Cathy Nesbitt 
Learn all about worms and vermicomposting – a viable solution for anywhere not being served by an organic collection program or access to outdoor composting. Discover how worms convert organic matter into nature’s finest soil amendment known as castings. Feed the soil, not the plant. Vermicomposting is shown from set-up to harvest. Worm eggs, castings and worm bins in various stages are displayed. Worms are going to play an ever-increasing role in waste management, soil production and therefore food security.
