On Thursday February 23rd at 6pm Darke County Parks will be hosting a worm composting class at the Nature Center. Participants are invited to learn how indoor vermicomposting helps people and the environment. Explore the truths and myths associated with compost while the naturalist staff leads you through all aspects of worm bin care. Discover how choosing the correct worms, maintaining good ratios, and monitoring moisture can give you what gardeners refer to as “black gold”. Participants will receive small starter bins, worms, and materials to take home and get started. The registration deadline for this workshop is February 3rd, and a $15 fee will cover all materials. For questions about this or any other park district programs or to register for the class, please call 548-0165.
