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.
