Learn About the Benefits of Vermicomposting During This Informative Gardening Class

Founded in 1909, the purpose of the Houston Museum of Natural Science has always been to “enhance in individuals the knowledge and delight in natural science and related subjects.” To this very day, this purpose is carried out in every project, program, and exhibition associated with the museum.

As one of the most heavily attended museums in the United States, and one of the most attended venues in Houston, the Museum houses the Burke Baker Planetarium, Wortham GIANT Screen Theatre, Cockrell Butterfly Center and a fascinating variety of permanent exhibit areas that examine astronomy, space science, Native American culture, paleontology, energy, chemistry, gems and minerals, seashells, Texas wildlife and much more. In addition, the museum frequently presents traveling exhibitions on a variety of topics.

Join us for one of our popular gardening classes! This one shows you how to stop throwing your food scraps in the trash, encouraging you to learn the how-tos and benefits of bokashi and vermicomposting. Bokashi composting uses kitchen scraps of all kinds, including meat and dairy products, mixed with inoculated bran to make compost faster than bin composting.

Vermicomposting uses composting worms to recycle the kitchen, garden, and specific paper wastes. The worms turn the waste into worm castings that are nutrient-rich.

This event is co-sponsored by Urban Harvest! The minimum age of participants is 15 years. Tickets are $40.00 for non-members and $30.00 for members.

Bayou Parc at Oak Forest, the premier apartments in Houston, Texas, is inviting friends and neighbors to attend this unforgettable event! So, lace up your shoes and get ready for a local adventure, like no other!
