May 16 4:30-5:30- 
Meet Worm Farmer B.J. and her amazing Red Wigglers!
Students will meet the amazing Red Wiggler worms, our hardworking natural composters! These unique worms help us to compost kitchen scraps into healthy soil for our plants. Come learn all about these creatures and their extraordinary habits and physiology. Using magnifying glasses, students will have a chance to observe them up close and feed them! Students will also have the opportunity to explore worms through some hands-on creative extension activities. Sometimes a small creature or almost invisible creature can have a big impact turning our unwanted garbage and waste into usable soil to grow our food! See how these tiny creatures are an important part of our food cycle team!
