Worm Composting!

The Aurora Public Library is getting a worm composter! Come join us for our composter launch with Cathy Nesbitt from Cathy’s Crawly Composters. Cathy will tell us all about worm composting and show us how to get set-up and maintain a vermicomposter at the library. She will show us worm eggs, castings and worm bins in various stages and answer all your wormy questions. Then you can help us prepare the bedding for our library worm bin. You can even hold some of our very own composting worms!
