ILSR & ECO City FarmsNeighborhood Soil Rebuilders Composter Training Program is partnering with the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, DC Department of Public Works, and other DC Food Recovery-focused organizations, agencies and individuals for a Week of Action, May 14th-20th. ILSR’s Brenda Platt and Linda Bilsens are kicking of the Week of Action with a Vermicomposting Workshop, hosted at Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School on Saturday, May 14th, from 10am-1pm.

Vermicomposting (composting done by worms) is a great way to start composting at home or in your community — the worms do most of the work! This workshop will cover benefits of vermicompost, and tips and tricks for proper worm-husbandry. Participants will learn to build simple worm-bins that they can use at home.

Register for the FREE Worm-Powered Composting at Home workshop HERE!

Also as part of the DC Food Recovery Week of Action, ILSR’s Brenda Platt will be speaking at the DC Department of Public Works’  Path to Zero Waste: Organics Waste Summit.
