About this Event

In this interactive workshop we will explore some of the limits to water in the West and solutions for slowing, sinking, and spreading water in the landscape. We will discuss the legality and types of systems for utilizing rain barrels and greywater to hydrate the landscape in Colorado. From broadscale farms to urban lots, this workshop will provide solutions to water efficiency and offer tangible take-home examples for making the most of every drop of water. You will leave this workshop with the skills to build your own rainbarrel and the resources to re-use greywater in your landscape.

Vermicomposting AKA Worm Farms

with Tara Rae Kent

Date/Time TBD

Have you been thinking of starting a worm farm? Does reducing and recycling your kitchen waste sound appealing? Red Wrigglers are the best recyclers in the world – converting nearly their own weight into black gold every day! Vermicomposting is apartment-friendly, does not smell (bad), and is a great way to recycle your kitchen scraps into valuable nutrients.

Learn about worm biology, basic composting chemistry, the uses of worm compost, and how to brew compost/worm tea. This Zoom workshop will have worm farm demos which include building and maintaining your own worm farm. Following the class, free starter containers of worms are available for porch pickup in Arvada.
