Learn how to compost with worms with Tricycle Gardens and Green Unity. Worm composting is great for small spaces indoors, as it gives off little to no odor. Perfect for dorm and apartment dwellers with no access to a yard. When combined with recycling, worm composting can reduce the amount of household waste going to the landfill by up to 80%. Participants will take home their own worm composting kit, so they can try it at home!

All proceeds from this event go to support the Union Hill Community Garden Project. Admission is guaranteed for the first 20 students to register. Limited additional space is available for VCU faculty & staff, as well as Richmond community members.

Workshop cost: $20 per person
Student discounted cost: $15 per person
Payment can be made at the event through cash or check
