Food for our worms – Now that we are back at Church please remem­ber our little friends and that their work ON YOUR VEGIE SCRAPS helps reduce green­house gasses (meth­ane).  If you bring a con­tain­er I am happy to place worm cast­ings for your garden in it for the next week.  Please leave your worm food gifts at church on Sundays or drop off dur­ing the week.  The par­ish worms are so plen­ti­ful at the moment that I can sup­ply start up live­stock if you have begun a worm farm.  But I do need them to going to a good home. (NB — no dairy, cit­rus or meat)  Fr. Jeff
