About the event
Learn everything you need to know to set up and maintain worm farms, and keep your worms happy! This workshop is for all ages, and includes demonstrations on how to set up a new worm farm, construct an in-ground worm farm from recycled materials, and build your own worm farm from recycled foam boxes. This training session will also cover what to put in your worm farm and what not to, how to harvest and use the worm castings and liquid from the worm farm, and how to care for worms during hot summers and wet winters.
This is a 2-hour workshop which includes a 15-minute questions and answers session at the end.
Angelo Eliades is a presenter, trainer and writer in the areas of sustainable gardening and permaculture. He has worked as a horticulturist in the garden nursery industry over the last ten years, writes for a major Australian gardening magazine, has a demonstration food forest garden in Melbourne’s inner suburbs, and runs the educational website Deep Green Permaculture.
Waring (wombat) is the coldest, wettest Wurundjeri season, spanning from April - July, where mushrooms and moths flourish and wombats roam in the afternoon sun.
