Philadelphia smirk

Composting fail.

I've been thinking a lot lately about starting to compost in my kitchen. I did some googling last night and found out that the Pennsylvania Resources Council was hosting a vermicomposting class on Saturday at Construction Junction. Vermicomposting was the form of composting that I most wanted to try but I was afraid of screwing it up, so the idea of getting started by way of a two hour class seemed perfect.

I emailed them last night as soon as I saw the class listed on their site. Was there still room left? Was it too late to register? They emailed me this morning. The class was "...cancelled [sic] due to insufficient enrollment." Meh.

So now I'm trying to decide between a Bokashi Bin or maybe just something like this. I admit it: I'm too scared to try the worms without some instruction.

The PRC is actually having a composting class at The Co-op in early September, but it's backyard composting, meaning giant bins that live in an outdoor space (which, as an apartment dweller, I don't have). Again I say "meh."
