Recycle your kitchen scraps into “black gold” by keeping a worm bin. Vermiculture is an easy and time-tested method of rapidly improving your garden and indoor plants. This class will also cover how to start and maintain an organic compost pile. Instead of putting out bags of garden debris destined for the landfill, learn how to recycle that material back into your landscape. Save money on bags of compost to amend your garden soil next spring.

    Contact: Sally Berriman   303-477-7139   bikesally@gmail.com
   

We're becoming more and more aware of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Questions about safety and the issue of mandatory food labeling are super-hot topics currently in the news. Potential applications of this technology are fascinating and far-reaching. There's a plethora of information about this subject on the Internet, but not all of it is factual or impartial. E.J. Bennett, a 15-year veteran CSU trained Master Gardener, who is also a practicing attorney in Golden, has studied this topic extensively and brings you the most up-to-date information about GMOs--pros and the cons--presented in an unbiased manner. Ms. Bennett will share a 45-minute PowerPoint presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period. Come get educated!
