The Soil Amendment Center (renamed from “Vermiculture Center” or “Lombricario” to reflect its broader scope) is an approximately 8 M x 8.5 M (26′ x 28′) pole building — essentially a metal roof to cover a generous work space containing a variety of soil building elements, including worm bins, compost bins, MM barrels, screens, biochar barrels and a small lab space. The poles are teak, bought from Oldemar at the bottom of the hill, for $5 each.
