Outdoors Gardeners use worms in compost

The Franklin Garden Club and the Macon County Master Gardeners were recently invited to the home of Lois Selfon for a Worm Composting Workshop presented by Professor Ronda Sherman from NC State.

Professor Sherman demonstrated how to build and maintain an inexpensive “worm bin” in which worms are used to transform food wastes and other organic matter into fertilizer.

According to Sherman, out of the hundreds of different species of worms worldwide, only a half-dozen can productively be used for this purpose and only one that can be used in this part of the world.

In addition to the workshop, the many participants also enjoyed a luncheon and a walk through Selfon’s gardens.
