05/14/23 Worms in my Kitchen!  1pm - 3:30 pm Trecia Neal

In this exciting hands-on workshop Trecia Neal from Green Gardens Education & Designs, participants will learn how worms called red wigglers eat food waste and turn it into nutrient rich compost, be given activities on vermicomposting, and leave with their own worm bin.

Trecia Neal

Most people rarely have a direct connection to the natural world.  It is difficult to understand and appreciate nature when you have never had a chance to observe the process of growth and decay in an ecosystem.  Also, because of current trash collection methods, people are never forced to deal directly with the trash that we create and also don’t know what happens to trash after it goes to the curb.

Vermicomposting allows people to observe first-hand the process of decomposition and empowers them to create a useful product from what is currently considered to be trash.  Presently, all of our solid waste disposal methods destroy this rich resource that is present in the organic waste stream.  Worms provide a simple means to convert organic waste into a nutrient-rich material called castings that are capable of growing plants.  Worms excite and motivate children and adults of all ability levels and ages.

 

Utilizing a humorous Power Point presentation and hands-on investigation, participants in this session will learn the anatomy, life cycle, and how to care for red wigglers.  Participants will create and take home their own worm bin.  As we construct our worm bins we will discuss how citizens of Georgia are affected by the problems we are facing with solid waste disposal.  Constructing and purchase of a worm bin are not necessary to attend this lecture.
