A Rind is a Terrible Thing to Waste, COMPOST!
At our last meeting, Joan O’Connor spoke about the virtues of worm composting. The above quote is an example of her wit. She gave a lively talk and got many of us excited about vermicomposting.
With just a few easy to get items, anyone can make a good worm compost. Get yourself a couple of plastic bins, newspaper, peat moss, worms, worm food and good air circulation and you are in business. You can order you worms from Joan. The variety she sells, Red Wigglers (Eisenia Fetida) are the best for composting. They love most food scraps. No salt, meat, fish, dairy or oily foods please! Coffee grounds are a favorite. Joan provided several handouts at the meeting that explains everything you need to know about getting started. Some members have already ordered their worms. Visit Joan’s Website to order worms and get more info.
Another of Joan’s passions is the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market which she founded. It is held every Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 2, January through March. With over 40 local vendors, it sounds worth the trip. Check it out on the Market Website. These links also appear in the link lists on the side bar.
