Worm-Bin Harvesting with Jock Robie

Jock Robie of Mainely Worm Bins shared his knowledge of worm composting with GGHC last summer. Our next meeting with Mr. Robie is at the Community Center (Old Church Building on corner of Main St and Church St) in South Paris, next to the Paris Public Library. The street address of the building is 39 Main Street, South Paris, Maine. A donation to the Paris Public Library is appreciated to help cover the cost of the room. The meeting will be in the basement. Please enter through the door on the side of the building facing Church Street. Parking is available in the parking lot behind the Public Library.

The meeting goes from 5:00 to 7:30 PM on Monday, March 26th.

Please let us know if you plan to attend. If you have a worm bin from last year, please bring it with you.

This event on March 26th will just be a harvest. Beginners may attend to watch and learn but no new worm bins will be supplied at this event. If there is interest, a workshop will be scheduled at a future date for beginners. We hope to see you for your worm bin harvest on March 26th!
