Event description
Learn about worm farming and make your own in-ground worm farm. (Women only event)

About this Event

Book your space to come and learn about worm farming. Spring is just around the corner, and now is a good time to start getting your supplies together, including making healthy soil. Worm farms are one of the easiest and most effective ways to transform your food waste into a useful product for your garden - worm castings.

I get offered a lot of food grade plastic buckets, and in order to divert these from landfill, I make in ground worm farms. I'll have my handy drill with me so you can create your own worm farm to take home.

The plastic bucket version doesn't suit everyone's garden, and if you have a plastic container you'd like to use, please bring it with you and we can put the right sized holes in it. I've used a retro style tupperware type pasta holder with a screw top lid, and it's perfect inside a large plant pot.

Bonus: Each attendee will receive a ticket for the online course on In Ground Worm Farming valued at $25.

Not included: Depending on how many people attend on the day, there may be enough worms for everyone to start a thriving worm farm, but you may need to supplement from another source.

Each week of gardening at the Women's Centre will include a garden tour, with advice on how to tend an edible garden at this time of year. There are often seeds to collect, plants to divide, cuttings to take.

It's a delightful venue, one of my most favourite gardens in Auckland. I am sure you will feel right at home - while we're there gardening you can make yourself a cup of tea, pick up some flyers on the courses on offer, and check out the calendar of social events.

Through the spring I will teach a few modules from my edible gardening curriculum - pick the topics that suit your interests, or come along each week for the company, get your questions answered, and shop for extra plants and tools from my mobile shop. I don't put anything on a courier, so this is a great chance to order seedlings or seed-raising mix.

Items for sale for the in ground worm farm session will include:

  • microgreen starter kits
  • seed raising mix to grow your own food at home (bring a bucket)
  • wooden seed trays (limited supply)
  • coconut coir, pumice sand, sifted compost (bring a bucket)
  • stainless steel buckets

Note: This will be postponed in the case of wet weather. Refunds need to be requested before the session is scheduled to start, otherwise the session will be recorded as an online session via zoom.
