It’s a dirty job: All about worms

Did you know worms have no arms, legs or eyes? Well they don’t, and there are many more interesting facts about the lowly worm to be learned at the Staten Island Children’s Museum on March 23 when the Wizard of Worms, Andrew Blancero, shares his worm lore with children.

Presented by the New York City Compost Project, Blancero will demonstrate how the Red Wiggler worms compost food scraps and how composting benefits and enriches the soil to grow better fruits and veggies.

“Meet Andrew and his Worms!” at the Staten Island Children’s Museum [1000 Richmond Terrace at Tysen Street in Randall Manor, (718) 273-2060] on March 23 at 1 pm. Free admission from 10 am to 5 pm. For more, visit the Museum’s website at statenislandkids.org or call the New York City Compost Project on Staten Island at (718) 425-3558.
