Composting can be difficult, especially in areas that don’t offer commercial composting services.

But the Dinkelman Worm Farm is hosting a vermiculture demonstration — or the cultivation of earth worms — at the Delvin Farms Good For All Plants event next weekend to help people create compost in their own homes to help benefit their gardens or farms.

The Dinkelman Worm Farm was once a dairy farm, but since 1998 now produces vermicompost and sells red wriggler composting worms for people to use to make their own compost.

The Good For All Plants event, which is being held Saturday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will also feature homemade goat soaps and candles, fresh-ground flax and farm/rural antiques with which to decorate your farm or yard, all for sale.

Delvin Farms is at 46002 212th Avenue South East in Enumclaw, and is open Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday s from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or by appointment. Contact the farm at 253-431-0804 for more information.
