After event update:

Landon Dale was up to his elbows in worms and quickly had everyone build their ow worm composters which will save thousands of pounds of kitchen waste from the landfill.
Each participant took their own wormery home and will have nutritious worm castings to add to their gardens this summer instead of expensive commercial fertilizer. These new worm moms are created a healthier earth.
