Hold Sat., Feb. 8 for bad weather date

Local plantsman, horticulturist, and owner of The Gardener’s Arms Thomas Hawkins is very enthusiastic about composting with his voracious manure worms! Learn with him how to reduce your global footprint by having worms take care of your kitchen waste, paper scraps, and cardboard. Thomas will demonstrate how to do this at home and suggest the best materials. And, you will leave with your own set of hungry worms! Limit to 15.

Members: $20                   Non-members: $30
