Vermicomposting, the process of using worms to break down food, has many benefits that can indirectly impact the C&O Canal National Historical Park and the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Food waste and trash both bring challenges to the Park, contributing to climate change and impacting the native ecosystems we are trying to protect. If you are interested in learning how you can contribute to the health of the C&O Canal, improve your home gardens, and spare your wallet, join the C&O Canal Trust for this free educational workshop, scheduled for Saturday, June 8.
Participants will enjoy a brief educational presentation on vermicomposting before making their own take-home vermicomposting kits, worms included. Participants will also take home a free native plant.
This workshop will take place from 12-3pm at Great Falls Tavern.
Registration is limited, so sign up now. Please email Cheyenne Sebold with any questions at [email protected] or by calling 301-745-8888.
