Cleaning Compost - Collecting Castings

September 22, 2018

Hillcrest staff, students, and their families will gather in the Hillcrest Learning Garden to collect and package the nutrient-rich soil created by the red wigglers in our four vermicomposting bins. Work parties will also, remove compost from our food scrap composting system and clean out the bins. Finally, our youngest volunteers will help weed and till our raised beds in preparation for fall and winter planting.
