Join us as we learn all about the red wiggler worms of Charlestown. Vermiculture is the process of using worms to decompose organic food waste which is then converted into a nutrient-rich material. The nutrient-rich material is then capable of supplying necessary nutrients to help sustain plant growth. This method is simple, effective, convenient, and noiseless. It saves water, energy, landfills, and helps rebuild the soil.
The Worm Ladies of Charlestown is run by passionate individuals who believe soil health is truly important.
