Freeport Community Library – Vermicomposting for Beginners and Alumni

June 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Freeport Community Library is pleased to welcome back Jock Robie, who will be presenting his Vermicomposting Workshop on Tuesday, June 11 from 5:30-7:30PM in FCL’s Meeting Room. Intended for beginners and returning attendees alike, Jock will provide detailed information and instruction and even free starter kits for attendees who want to begin their own worm bins at home!

The session begins with the instructor assisting prior attendees with the harvest of their worm bins. Then he demonstrates and assists as beginners set up their own worm bins (availability limited to five households – one worm bin per household). After the worm bins are assembled, the instructor will give his “Worm Talk.” The talk covers several subjects, including introductory background information, the benefits of worm composting over traditional composting, practical techniques and common problem troubleshooting.

Following the workshop, the instructor offers to remain in contact with the households that have created a worm bin until they reach a point of self-reliance. The instructor also returns to the library every 3-to-4 months to assist with the first harvest of each student’s worm bin (which is also taking place at the start of this workshop).

WANT WORMS?? Join us at the workshop where we’re giving away 5 free starter kits for vermicomposting! Each kit includes all the essentials to kickstart your vermicomposting journey. Recipients will be selected through a live random drawing. Interested individuals can call the library to sign up in advance for the drawing, but only attendees of the workshop will qualify to receive a kit. Not ready to commit to vermicomposting? No problem! Attendees who simply want to view the presentation are also welcome!

This event is free and open to the public. For questions or directions to the library, please visit freeportlibrary.com or call 207-865-3307.
