From Gross to Great Garden

You’ll never look at trash the same way again. The Ecology Center is offering a workshop Saturday at 1 to 3 p.m. where you can learn two methods of turning trash you’re your garden’s best friend: traditional and vermicomposting (that’d be with worms). With this lesson, you can take home a vermicomposting bin complete with 1 lb. of red worms! If you’re San Juan Capistrano resident and you decide composting with worms is not for you, you’ll receive a $45 rebate for purchasing a traditional composting bin after taking this class.

Cost: $25 tuition, plus $20 materials fee. Register here.

32701 Alipaz Street in San Juan Capistrano. 949.443.4223.
