Get your hands dirty with a short 1.5 hour workshop where we you will learn about composting, our soil and how to build and care for a wormery.

The workshop is accompanying the film screening 2040 which is happening at the same venue just before! Please book onto the film screening as well, here.

Did you know that the soil that we walk on and that we grow our food in is not just rocks and dirt, but a whole ecosystem? Soil is alive, it's home to billions of micro organisms, invertebrates and other animals. The health of the soil is key to a healthy climate and a healthy food system.

Together we'll make mini wormeries and outline other practical steps anyone can take for the soil! You'll then get to take a wormery home with you.

We will be sharing seeds and seedlings too, so please bring some along to swap with others.

This workshop will be led by Jenny and Cara who are Community Activators from Glasgow Community Food Network's Food & Climate Action Project.
