Compost Alex returns to us for the Celebration with composting in City parks by getting a sample bag of worm castings made here in Alexandria! They were produced by the Hammond Middle School’s Composting Worm Club, where the club took locally collected food scraps, composted the material, and had red wiggler worms produce worm castings. What happens next? You mix the castings into your garden and watch your plants grow! The castings make soil rich and nutritious for plants. Better yet, getting these castings also benefits a fundraiser: half of the proceeds will go to the Worm Club’s operational expenses and the other half goes to making compost sites in Alexandria parks. Compost Alex will be distributing these castings during this Thursday’s North Old Town Farmers Market as part of their Summer Solstice Celebration.

Local bike shop Wheel Nuts has generously offered to share their skills with us at the Solstice Celebration with basic safety checks, info on commuting with your bike in the DMV and more! Many thanks to Ron and his team.
