University of Illinois Extension in partnership with Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences (CHSAS) would like to invite you to a fun night of exploring the world of worms.
What: Worm Composting - Understand why your grandmother insisted on putting her eggshells and used coffee grounds right into her vegetable garden. Learn the history, anatomy, eco-function and diet of the red-wiggler worm and some of our own backyard night-crawlers. Learn how to set up an environment, feed and raise your own compost worms indoors and how to troubleshoot common issues.
When: Wednesday, February 17, 2010
Time: Sessions start at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Where: U of I Extension at CHSAS – 3807 W. 111th Street (Please use east entrance, off of 111th and Hamlin)
Cost: $5 per family/person
Note: A minimum of 10 participants per session is required to move forth with the program. A worm bin ($35 value) will be raffled off during each session.
Contact: Please contact U of I Extension at 773-233-0476 to register for the program.
