Happier, healthier, nutrient-fed plants require less watering to thrive. In this class you will learn how to set up your counter-top bin, care for and harvest your home bin and identify when it’s time to move on to bigger and better bins. This workshop is offered by the The Board of Water Supply (BWS), the Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Garden (FOHXG) and Ewa Blue Worms.

Why waste a gallon of water or more each day running your kitchen waste through a garbage disposal when instead you can save water by converting your kitchen waste into several pounds of nutrient rich vermicast each year?

Workshop participants will set up and take home their own mini bin. They will not only learn how to care for their worms they will learn how to grow their worm supply. The end result being a supply of nutrient rich vermicast for organic growing and robust blooms on ornamental plants. It’s a great way to utilize kitchen waste.
