WHAT: Got Worms? Turn Your Trash to Treasure with Home Worm Composting
WHEN: Wednesday, July 22, 6:30-7:30 pm
WHERE: Indy Hostel, 4903 Winthrop Ave, Indianapolis, IN
Join the Keystone-Monon Community Garden and Keith O’Dell of Castaway Compost for this FREE interactive, hands on workshop on how to start your own worm composting system. Vermicomposting is a fun, easy way to turn your food waste into “black gold,” or worm compost, that can keep your garden and house plants healthy and strong.
Vermicomposting is a great project for kids (of all ages), and anyone can do it, even if you don’t have a lot of space for a traditional composting bin system.
SPECIAL THANKS to community partner Indy Hostel for hosting us! Feel free to bring your own chairs or blankets, drinks, and food. We’ll also provide a brief update about the garden’s status and when we expect to begin building.
Keith will provide us with his expertise, and attendees will have the opportunity to purchase supplies from Castaway Compost to start their own home vermicomposting bins.
ABOUT KEITH O’DELL AND CASTAWAY COMPOST: Castaway Compost was formed by accident. I was trying to answer two questions: how to improve crop production in Kenya and Honduras (Missionary friends) and how to get rid of hundreds of pounds of coffee grounds (work). Several months of Internet surfing and discussions with interested parties led me from composting to hydroponics to aquaculture and finally to worm composting. Castaway Compost was formed. I haven’t completely answered the two questions – I’m still learning – but I do have many working worm bins, thriving gardens and lawn and hundreds of pounds of worm compost.
