Gaming is moving through a transition and will soon be establishing a new Board of Directors as we move forward. We continue to operate with the tremendous support of our volunteers and will continue to strive to provide the services, events and opportunities that we have become known for.

Our summer camp program will continue and if anyone requires information about our summer camp program then please contact us via email at info@gamiing.org.

We look forward to continuing to stand committed to our mission:

“The mission of Gamiing Nature Centre is to build a sustainable, healthy and robust ecosystem for current and future generations and build, strengthen and enrich Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationships.”

August Vermiculture Composting Workshop

August 21 - 2:00-4:00pm

Tickets Available Here

Worm composting uses worms to recycle food scraps & other organic material into a valuable soil amendment called vermicompost.

About this event

Mieke and John together will lead this workshop in worm composting.

Worms eat food scraps, which become compost as they pass through the worm's body. This compost can then be used to grow plants.

Worm composting, also known as vermicomposting or vermiculture, produces natural, odor-free compost that takes about 30 minutes per week to maintain.

The biggest time investment is harvesting your worm castings (the precious poop/garden fertilizer), and that happens about every 3-6 months.
