Vermiculture courses

This service is a space of knowledge where participants find, through a carefully designed agenda, all the technical aspects related to vermiculture. During your visit to the vermiculture, you will see practical and executable solutions for the production of both granulated vermicompost and liquid humus.

This learning model facilitates knowledge and allows new worm growers to start designing their own projects very soon.
