COMPOSTING WITH RED WIGGLERS Canceled!
Due to a death in the family. Our sympathies to Mary Ann Smith and family.
With Mary Ann Smith

Worm Castings (aka worm poop) is also known as “black gold” because it is so rich and packed with great microbial activity. These microbes are super beneficial to your soil, making your plants happy and healthy. Worm castings can be used on any plant – including houseplants. Mary Ann’s workshop will elaborate on the great benefits of vermicompost, how to make it your own worm compost, and constructing and setting up your own worm bin. This is one of the best DIY composting methods and produces amazing results! About 1 hour. Free, but please pre-register at 828-645-3937 or in person.
Mary Ann Smith is a native of Waynesville, and a retired high school math teacher who decided to start a worm farm when she stopped teaching full time. Valley View Worms and Produce has now been in business for 3 years, and Mary Ann is happy to share her expertise with interested gardeners and composters who not only want to recycle valuable nutritional waste, but also take their gardening to the next level.
