Vermiculture Workshop Great Success!
Vermiculture expert, Dennis Burkhardt, came to Columbia today and showed us how to create loads of rich compost with worms. Very exciting! Check out the pictures at http://www.flickr.com/photos/jackson_cooper/sets/72157614859766403/
Here are some sources he provided for further worm information:

Next, we'll be having a worm bin-building session after spring break, so watch out for that.
