Join Monique Bosch from Wiggle Room – Organic Worm Composting to learn how worm composing can help you grow the healthiest plants this season. We’ll explore ‘living soil’, what it looks like, how to make it, and how to harness its goodness. A step-by-step instruction will be given for those interested in starting this most effective method of composting.
Monique Bosch is trained in landscape design, horticulture and soil biology. She is a community leader, teaching about healthy soil and healthy food. Monique has worked with volunteers to build over 40 edible school and community gardens and farms in CT and RI. Current projects include creating an edible campus at a local community college and working with teens to build a regenerative community farm.
