Composting and Vermiculture Composting   

Do you want to lower your carbon footprint and make your own organic fertilizer in one simple process? Learn to compost! Composting is the process for recycling wastes like kitchen scraps and grass clippings into an organic soil amendment that will help your garden retain moisture and support beneficial microorganisms. Vermiculture composting uses worms to recycle food scraps and other organic material. These two methods are a great alternative to putting food and yard wastes in landfills, where they generate methane. Join us in this 2-part series to learn the basics of composting at home, and to become familiar with the variety of composting systems. The first class of this series will be a classroom-based component at the Food Innovation Center, and the second class will be more of a hands-on experience with multiple composting systems at the Western Michigan University’s Gibbs House.
