In this workshop you will:
Learn how to build DIY worm composting systems that are so simple anyone can do it!
We will discuss a variety of different vermicompost set ups to find one that is a fit for your family.
Learn all about Bokashi, a method of fermenting your kitchen waste and accelerating the decomposition process. You will learn how to make the bran inoculant for this process and explore a variety of ways to use this product in soil building. You will leave with a bag of inoculant that is ready for you to get started right away.

Melissa Rickey is an enthusiastic learner and explorer of permaculture. She is always looking for ways to accelerate the process of generating organic matter to create and nourish healthy soil and healthy gardens.
