It isn’t often there are worm farming events worth announcing far and wide. Right now I have 2 things coming up in 2018 that you should know about. The first is the 19th annual NCSU Vermiculture Conference on November 10th & 11th 2018 in Raleigh NC. To register for the conference go here. This year the conference falls on a weekend and the lineup of speakers looks impressive so far.
Rhonda Sherman the chief organizer of the event has, what promises to be an excellent new book coming out on November 6th 2018 called The Worm Farmer’s Handbook: Mid- to Large-Scale Vermicomposting for Farms, Businesses, Municipalities, Schools, and Institutions
Rhonda has travelled the world teaching vermiculture and is a leading researcher with many publications to her credit. Rhonda also had a large role in (what I consider) the ultimate guide to working with worms (so far) Vermiculture Technology: Earthworms, Organic Wastes, and Environmental Management
All in all the end of 2018 looks like an exciting time for worm farming fanatics.
I will unfortunately be unable to attend the conference but it’s sure to be a great time and an awesome learning experience for all.
