share your skills! worm composting class
Exciting things are happening in Wheat Ridge! We are part of a newly developing group called Live Local Harvesters that is building community around gardening, urban homesteading, livestock, local agriculture, etc. We have monthly potlucks sometimes accompanied by food politics movies. We have informal skill sharing classes led by community members. We have informative barn raising events like for example a group set up drip irrigation in one person's backyard and everyone left knowing how to do it in their own yard. We have a message board where people can ask questions, post new discoveries, or host improptu events. It's all very fluid and energized which is very exciting.
Anyway, Eric recently taught a skill share class on worm composting and building worm composting bins. Everyone who attended and wanted a worm bin left with a worm bin that they helped to build and some worms. It was an excellent community building event!
