For Master Gardeners
Worm Bins

Vermiculture is the management of worms. Worm bins are populated by active “red wiggler” worms which turn garbage and shredded newspaper into castings used to brew compost tea. We use the worms to make compost tea which is a fund raiser for our Chapter.

Master Gardeners actively brew this tea for use in their greenhouse and nursery plants. It enhances the growth of plants that provide food along with producing prosperous and financially rewarding fertilizer.
