August 2021 Monthly Meeting

Worms in My Kitchen is Trecia Neal’s topic for our August 16th meeting.  We’ll hear about the art of vermicomposting. Vermicomposting is using worms (red wigglers) to change food waste into what gardeners refer to as “black gold”. Worm castings are the best fertilizer that you can find for vegetables, perennials, shrubs, trees, and lawns.  Step by step instructions will be given during this talk for how to make our own vermicomposting container and transform our food waste to black gold. Trecia, a retired biologist working at Fernbank Science Center in Atlanta for thirty years, has expertise are ornithology, environmental education, and designing outdoor classrooms and gardens.  Our meeting will be held at Bethesda Senior Center. Social hour at 6:30PM and the meeting begins at 7PM.
