Alameda Gardeners Host Workshop

Alameda Backyard Growers (ABG) will host a worm-composting workshop from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, March 13, at Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Ave.

Lori Lue-Melero and daughter Mikayla Melero of MyvPetvWormyvWorm will discuss how garbage helps a garden grow in a fun, hands-on vermi-composting workshop for the whole family. Guests will learn how to turn food scraps into rich organic soil with the help of red wrigglers and how to care for the environment by recycling, re-purposing, and reusing items which would otherwise go into a landfill.

ABG meetings are held monthly from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., on the second Tuesday of each month at Rhythmix Cultural Works (unless otherwise noted). Monthly meetings/workshops are free and open to all residents of Alameda and the surrounding area. Gardeners of all experience levels are welcome.

Monthly meetings are when members drop off fruit and vegetable donations from their gardens to donate to the Alameda Food Bank. The group delivers members’ produce to the food bank the following morning, and donated produce is typically distributed to food bank clients within 24 hours.
