with Jock Robie


Add to Wait List
Class is full

Come and learn how to construct, set up, and maintain a worm bin to compost kitchen vegetable waste in order to recycle it as plant food. Join Jock Robie as he discusses the harvesting of worm castings and vermicompost for gardening and houseplants as well as “worm tea”! Each student will set up their own worm bin with worms to take home. Couples registering will receive ONE worm bin for their household, not one for each person. Single registrations will receive their one worm bin. All materials and worms are supplied at no extra charge. Jock Robie has over eight years of practical experience designing, building, and using worm bins to compost kitchen waste. He feeds his 40 worm bins close to 35 pounds per week of kitchen scraps. He has also received the 2019 Ecomaine Eco-Excellence Award in the Business Category for leading the charge in reducing landfill waste and increasing recycling in our communities. Visit Jock’s blog at for more information about worm composting. Limit 5 worm bins.
