Recent studies estimate that 40% of the food grown in the US is never eaten and often ends up in our landfills. Waste audits in Fayette County show that nearly a third of our landfill-bound solid waste is organic and could be composted. You can do something about this!
Seedleaf is glad to be partnering with Bluegrass Greensource to help share information on using worms to assist with that breakdown (vermicomposting). Participants will build a simple compost bin and take home live worms. Come with your questions for this interactive discussion of the process of food breakdown, and what area gardeners can do with the finished product.
