WORMS AND DIRT ... The Master Gardener Demonstration Garden in Palo Alto turns much of its garden waste into compost that is used in the garden as soil amendment or mulch. Come see fast (hot) and slow compost being made on Saturday, Sept. 1, at the garden at 851 Center Drive. An active worm bin for vegetable and fruit scraps also will be on display, with a demonstration of how to harvest worm castings and return worms to the bin. Get all your compost questions answered. A free Earth Machine compost bin or worm bin will be available to Palo Alto residents (one per family) attending the event, which is co-sponsored by the City of Palo Alto. To preregister, go to: cesantaclara.ucanr.edu/Home_Composting_Education/Composting_Workshops.
