Backyard Vermicomposting Workshops Teach Ways to Save Time and Money

Since fall is the perfect time to focus on education and acquiring new skills, the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) is offering a full slate of adult education classes held at a variety of locations in Allegheny County throughout the months ahead.

Not sure what to do with leftover kitchen scraps and yard debris?  Learn how to turn organic waste into a natural, homemade compost for lawns and gardens by attending a vermicomposting workshop in October.

Composting kitchen waste and yard debris is easy to do and requires little time and effort – and produces a complete and natural food for the soil, improving its structure, water-retaining abilities and overall health.

Vermicomposting involves worms; worms produce a product (castings) that is considered an especially good soil amendment and nutrient source.  If sheltered from the cold, the system can maintain production year round.  Participants will receive a complete, ready-to-use vermiculture system.  Learn how to house, feed, harvest and care for your own worms!

To register for a PRC workshop, visit www.prc.org/programs or call 412-488-7490 x226.
