Beechwood Lecture – Life in the Soil

March 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Organic Worm Composting

Monique Bosch from Wiggle Room Organic Worm Composting will describe how worm composing can help you grow the healthiest plants this season.  She’ll explore ‘living soil’, what it looks like, how to make it, and how to harness its goodness.  A step-by-step instruction will be given for those interested in starting this most effective method of composting.

Monique Bosch is trained in landscape design, horticulture and soil biology. She is a community leader, teaching about healthy soil and healthy food. Monique has worked with volunteers to build over 40 edible school and community gardens and farms in Connecticut and Rhode Island. Current projects include creating an edible campus at a local community college and working with teens to build a regenerative community farm.

The Beechwood Lecture Series is a joint effort of the URI Master Gardeners Program and the RI Wild Plant Society. Master Gardeners receive education credits for attending. The lectures are offered to the public free of charge.

If interested in attending, please contact Rayna Wilcox, Volunteer/Program Coordinator, at The Beechwood Center for Life Enrichment at 401-268-1594; or email her at: RWilcox@northkingstown.org
