ACUA Hosting a Garden Talk for Vermicomposting on Tuesday, July 9

Jul 03, 2019

While it may sound like a radical practice used by only the most dedicated greenies, vermicomposting, or composting with worms, is an easy way to create a nutrient rich, natural fertilizer for your plants. Come learn about this method of composting food scraps at the next “Garden Talk” Tuesday, July 9 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority’s Community Garden in Egg Harbor Township.

Why worms? During the July 9 Garden Talk, Master Gardener Coordinator Belinda Chester and Atlantic County Master Composters will share information on this inexpensive, space-saving method of composting. Find out everything you need to get started including how to build an inexpensive worm bin that can easily be tucked away under a sink or other small space. You’ll even have a chance to take home some “starter worms.”

Garden Talks are hosted at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) in Egg Harbor Township. These talks are held in partnership with the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Atlantic County. These informal talks at the ACUA’s Community Garden offer a chance to learn from knowledgeable Master Gardeners, and for participants to ask questions about growing their own healthy food.

When the weather is good, these talks are held in ACUA’s Community Garden, which offers spaces for those who cannot garden at home. “Garden Talks” move indoors to a meeting room in the building next to the garden when needed. The garden is located at the ACUA’s Environmental Park, 6700 Delilah Road, in Egg Harbor Township. The meeting room is in the Geo Administrative Building at the same location. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please go to or call 609-272-6950.
