Presenters Information: Sara Howe has been a vermicomposter and gardener since 2010. Gardening in the arid soils of the Utah desert, she ordered her first box of worms from Pennsylvania. Experimenting with over a dozen types of manufactured and improvised farms, she developed techniques and methods for the perfect worm farm. She is the founder of Howe Innovative Design a full service digital marketing agency in Portland, OR.
