Learn how worms work their magic, converting kitchen scraps into a rich organic fertilizer. In this free hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to create and maintain an indoor worm composting bin in the classroom. 

You must register with LESEC to participate. Participants are encouraged to bring their own container. The container needs to be a plastic storage container with lid (8-12" deep). Red Wigglers will be available for sale.

Location Details:
Take the F, J, or M to Essex/Delancey stop. When you exit the station, walk east on the south side of Delancey Street (the Williamsburg Bridge will be above you and on your left) until you reach FDR Drive. Take the pedestrian bridge at the foot of Delancey Street across the FDR. Take the ramp all the way down (not the stairs). The Fire Boat House will be on your left (FDR on your right), south facing, just before the big ballfield. The building is a two-story red brick building right next to the East River and there is a seal spray shower park in front.
