Worms can eat a large amount of the food waste people throw out, and provide fertilizer for household plants and outdoor gardens. Come learn how worms work their magic at a class at 6 p.m., Jan. 20, at Fort Borst Park, in Centralia.
"We want to offer people the instructions and tools to start worm composting right away," explained Melanie Case, recycling program coordinator for the Lewis County Solid Waste Utility, which is putting on the program in conjunction with the WSU/Lewis County Master Recycler Composter (MRC) volunteers.
The class is free, but people who pre-register by Jan. 16 will be guaranteed the supplies to make a worm compost bin along with red wiggler worms to start their bins. Call (360) 740-1451 to pre-register for the class.
