July 2019 meeting - Sean Moore - Green Leaf Worm Farm

Join us Monday, July 8th 2019 at 7 PM Sean Moore - Greem Leaf Worm Farm

Harlee Building/County Fairgrounds, 1303 17th St W, Palmetto, FL 34221

Nine years ago, Sean Moore started Green Leaf Worm Farm in Port Charlotte where he grows tropical worms to make worm castings and worm tea. Much of what he does is education, whether it's through the farmers's markets from Sarasota to Fort Myers, speaking to garden club or traveling all over Florida to plant related events. Sean has helped many of the community gardens  and garden clubs to understand  the value of worms and worm castings in growing healthy plants without chemicals. Many times he has helped set up worm farms for individuals and showed them how to maintain a worm farm. He has also invested in the future by explaining to kids from pre-school to high school how important worms are to a sustainable planet.

First time visitors are welcome to check out a meeting for free - Family memberships to the club are only $12 annually. You can join at the meeting.This is a great way to meet other growers and learn more about growing and propagating subtropical/tropical fruit trees.

There will be the usual plant raffle and tasting table. We welcome donations of edible plants and fruit for the raffle and fruit dishes for the tasting table. Donors will receive a free ticket for the raffle. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased before the presentation.
