We had a nice turnout last night at the Hurricane Oyster Bar. It was a little warm and buggy hanging out on the deck, but as the sun went down, slight reminiscent twinges of ”old Florida” surfaced. As for Kat’s introduction to permaculture, she was energetic and peaked the crowds interest. Unfortunately, she had to compete with the sporadic on and off of the water fountain and the 80′s hair band music.
I’m including a few links relating to the 5 minute recycled worm bin demonstration. For those locals who are interested in Kat’s weekend permaculture courses, please leave a comment or send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Great permaculture blog with a post on why vermiculture is important, and how to make an inexpensive bin that allows the worms to move from one compartment to another. http://permaculturetokyo.blogspot.com/2007/01/wealth-and-health-from-waste-and-worms.html
This is a great site for teachers and offers a CD about the Adventures of Herman the Worm. Adults will find this educational and humorous as well. http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/worms/
This is an online newspaper about anything and everything pertaining to vermiculture. http://www.wormdigest.org/
Happy worm composting!
