If you have plenty of regular food scraps from your kitchen and some plants to take care of, this session is for you. We will explore how our food scraps can easily be transformed in high fertility compost by using a bucket full of worms, aka a wormery. How do we build one, how do we care for it, where can we put it and what can we do with its products? We will cover all things wormery and will also compare it to how a Bokashi bin works, thinking about which one might best suit your needs.
