Meet Me in Seattle

The worms and I are headed to Seattle in February. If you live in the Pacific Northwest and you’ve never been to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show…well, you don’t know what you’re missing. This is an over-the-top floral and garden extravaganza. I’m glad I’m scheduled for two days, because it will take me that long to get through it.

Come say hello at one of my three worm composting workshops:

Saturday, February 11, 12 noon
"The Secret Life of Worms"Sprouts Stage (Family Program)

Sunday, February 12, 11 a.m.
"Composting with Earthworms"Monrovia Stage

Sunday, February 12, 3 p.m.
"The Secret Life of Worms"Sprouts Stage (Family Program)

"Composting with Earthworms" description (the "Secret Life of Worms" is a shorter version for kids)

Join Amy Stewart, author of The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms, for an entertaining and in-depth exploration of that tireless ploughman, the earthworm. She’ll bring her worms and her worm bin with her for this hands-on workshop.

Find out all about the care and feeding of earthworms, and learn more about the extraordinary role that these creatures play in the soil. Thousands of earthworms can live in a small worm bin and consume all your kitchen scraps, creating earthworm castings that are rich in soil microbes and help produce healthy, disease-free plants. Worm composting is also a fun project for parents and kids to do together, allowing kids to learn firsthand about recycling and earth science.
