There was a Vermicomposting demonstration at the Litchfield Hills Farm-Fresh Market, Saturday, February 2, 10 am – 1 pm.
Ever heard of vermicomposting? It is the process of using worms and micro-organisms to turn kitchen waste into black, earthy-smelling, nutrient-rich humus. It’s a great way to compost kitchen waste during the winter or year-round if you live in an apartment, condo, or town that doesn’t allow outdoor composting. Master Composter Ellen Eberle demonstrated two different types of worm bins as well as had all the information you needed to get started.
