Rose Society Of Tucson News


Next Meeting: Tuesday, Sept. 3
Building Great Soil With Worms

Program: The Rose Society of Tucson’s own Jackie Shortridge will give a special PowerPoint presentation called Vermicomposting: Worm Poo And You. Jackie grows exceptional roses with the aid of worms. She will explain how to set up a worm farm in plastic containers and use the by-products for your roses and other plants. When these small crawling animals eat, they leave behind poop and castings which are valuable fertilizer. Learn how she does it.

Location: Tucson Botanical Gardens, 2150 N. Alvernon (one block south of Grant & Alvernon on the east side).

Cost: Free! Please come and bring a friend.
