About this event:
Note this is a REACH organized activity. No drop-offs, please. Parents are asked to stay on site and participate.
This project is part of our Green Steps Environmental Education Series. Students will Learn, Do and Teach others about the purpose and importance of composting. The vermi compost bin is a great way to learn how composting works and see the process up close. Take a look at our Vermicompost Project from last year.
Composting and Vermi Composing Class
Thursday, January 9 from 1:30-3 pm
Harbison State Forest
5600 Broad River Rd, Columbia, SC 29212
Follow the signs to the Education Center
All ages are welcome
Cost: $2.50/per student
One bin per family will be provided with the registrations. If you wish to have each child make their own, you can bring the necessary supplies along with you to this workshop. Or you can go home and create a variation of the one we demonstrate. We can provide you with additional “starter worms” for your extra bins.
You’ll learn how to start your own backyard compost pile. Bring along a bag or bucket of fruit and vegetable scraps (with no added fats or sugars) to contribute toward the backyard compost bins that stay on site at Harbison Forest. Also bring a rake so we can gather the leaves toward the compost bins. Wear comfortable clothes for being outside…you might get dirty and it might be chilly/cold. Rain or Shine…it’s on!
