Residents are encouraged to register right away to attend a free workshop on backyard composting and vermicomposting hosted by the Solana Center for Environmental Innovation. The event is set for 9 to 11 a.m. June 22 at the Del Mar Civic Center, 1050 Camino del Mar.
Register today for the free composting workshop.
During the two-hour session, participants can learn the basics of composting with organic material and with worms. Interactive demonstrations and guidance on trial-tested techniques will help participants choose the composting bins that best suit their needs. The workshop also will cover how to feed your worms, tips for keeping worms healthy and happy – a happy worm is a productive worm -- making your own worm bin, tools and materials and methods for harvesting worm castings.
Composting can beautify gardens and reduce the solid waste that is sent to landfills – an important part of the City’s Go Green Del Mar initiative.
