Main Street Calumet Market to host free worm castings workshop March 13

CALUMET -- The Main Street Calumet Market will host a workshop on worm castings and worm casting tea technology presented by Tom Dumble at 6 pm. Wednesday, March 13, in the ballroom of the Calumet Theatre, 340 Sixth Street, Calumet. The workshop is free and open to the public.

Mr. Dumble holds degrees in Agricultural Engineering Technology and Agriculture Economics from Oregon State University, and has designed, constructed or managed small and large commercial scale greenhouses in several countries -- among them the United States, Nicaragua, Lebanon, Uzbekistan and the Ukraine.

Advanced worm casting technology is almost the silver bullet organic farmers and gardeners have long wished for. Tens of thousands of varieties of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria, fungi and other microbiology contained in worm castings are being harnessed to replace conventional fertilizers, pesticides and hormones. Worm technology is used to resurrect soils whose biology has been ruined by mineral fertilizers and pesticides.
