Worm bins offered to Hamilton County residents

CINCINNATI, OHIO (FOX19)-The Hamilton County Solid Waste Management District, along with Cincinnati Parks, is offering a Vermicomposting at Home workshop to residents on Saturday, September 18th from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the LaBoiteaux Woods Nature Center. Residents who would like to participate need to submit registration and payment by September 12th. The cost to participate is $20.00 per family for Hamilton County residents. The cost for non-Hamilton County residents is $45.00 per family.

 Vermicomposting uses worms to break down kitchen food waste into compost. Vermicomposting produces a high quality compost for gardens and indoor plants while keeping the waste out of the landfill.

 The Vermicomposting at Home workshop will teach participants how to set up and maintain a healthy worm bin. Participants will receive a bin, bedding and worms. Additionally, each participant will also receive a copy of "Worms Eat My Garbage" by Mary Applehof.
