Just in time for planting season, the Tuckerton Seaport presents “Worms Eat My Garbage” with instructor Jeanine Cava on Saturday, April 27, from 1 to 3 p.m. Cava will show how much fun and how beneficial to the environment keeping a worm composting bin is for the whole family. Worms love to turn your kitchen vegetable scraps into healthy worm manure that plants love.

During this workshop, you will learn how to make your worm bin, how to care for the worms and then harvest the compost when it is ready.

A $35 fee is asked per bin for Seaport members ($40 for nonmembers). Feel free to bring the kids along. Each family will take home one bin and starter amount of red wriggler worms ready to turn your garbage into one of nature’s best soil amendments. Your garden plants and the Earth will thank you! Plus, you’ll have adorable new pets that provide a useful service.

And if you have a battery powered electric drill, please bring it. The Seaport has a few to share as well.

The Tuckerton Seaport, a 16-acre re-created maritime village on 40 acres along Tuckerton Creek, is located at 120 Main St. in Tuckerton. Call 609-296-8868 to register.  —P.J.
