What is vermicomposting? It's composting with worms! Specifically, red wiggler earthworms. These amazing creatures consume about 25% of their body weight each and every day to turn your kitchen scraps into soil enriching compost. In this online presentation with Rhonda Sherman, extension specialist in the Department of Horticultural Science at N.C. State University, learn how vermicompost boosts soil nutrients, improves drainage, and helps plants grow bigger and stronger so you get the most from your garden and landscape. $12; Discount of 20% for Gardens members and supporters with your discount code.
