What’s red, slimy and nature’s perfect composting machine? If you said something other than the Red Wiggler earthworm (composting worm), get yourself down to the Bend Public Library on Wednesday, March 9 at 6:30 pm
or the Sisters Public Library on Sunday, March 13 at 2:00 pm
for a presentation by Wonder Worman, Laurie Perez on how to use these little powerhouses in your home garden. Both presentations are free and open to the public.
Although there are many different kinds of worms, Perez has championed the Super Composting Red Wiggler (the Annelida, known as the Eisenia foetida among true worm lovers). “I chose the trusty Red Wigglers to be my Super Composting sidekicks because they are the hardiest worms, have an insatiable appetite for food we humans typically call garbage, and they possess an amazing reproductive capacity,” says Perez of her worms. She says that anyone can start a worm bin and harness the super compost-making power of the Red Wigglers. “Why throw away those kitchen scraps when an army of Red Wigglers can convert that trash into treasure?”
