Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
Getting a lot of information and meeting a lot of good people at this years Vermiculture Conference in Raleigh, NC.
Speakers include: Rhonda Sherman/NC State University, John Birnbaum/Michigan State University, Tom Healthy/Worm Power, Norman Aancon/ University of Hawaii-Hilo, Ron Alexander/ Alexander & Associates North Carolina, John Stewart/The Worm Farm, California.
Getting a lot of valuable information and some great networking. Approx. 120 people attending from all over the world.
If you have the time I would suggest everyone attend next years Conference. Well worth the time and the money. Great topics and speakers.
This sounds great. Who sponsors the conference and how can I get information?
NC State University's one and only Rhonda Sherman. She has a wealth of info for aspiring worm farmers and devoted much time and effort to promote vermicomposting:
More focus was given to pre-composting...Composting (hot composting) beforehand to reduce pathogens, weed seed and reduce possible thermal issues that kill worms. There is a conference upcoming shortly (mid-Sept. 2014) that focuses exclusively on composting which would help vermicomposters too.
This was a fantastic conference! Make sure you attend next year. :D
