Worms in My Kitchen was Trecia Neal’s topic for our first in-person meeting on August 16th meeting in seventeen months at Bethesda Senior Center in Lawrenceville.
Trecia presented a fun and entertaining, yet very informative program about the art of vermicomposting – i.e., 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 were be given during this talk for how to make our own vermicomposting container and transform our food waste to black gold.
Trecia is a retired biologist who work at Fernbank Science Center in Atlanta for thirty years and has expertise are ornithology, environmental education, and designing outdoor classrooms and gardens. She now does designs and gardens as “Green Gardens”. Information is at www.greengardensedu.com.
