As we begin our 2014-2015 season, Another Octave: Connecticut Women’s Chorus will be presenting a variety of events — both musical and non-musical — to celebrate our 25th anniversary year.
Usually we’re about music, but on Saturday, October 4, Another Octave presents....
a different kind of culture!
(or, how a bin of worms can help you love your planet)
Compost with worm power! Learn the ins and outs of vermiculture from JOCK ROBIE of MAINELY WORM BINS. This workshop includes two hours of instruction, an hour to construct your own worm bin, and a complimentary lunch. All materials — even the worms! — are included in the fee.
A single worm bin can prevent 70 pounds of food waste per year from entering a landfill by recycling it back into the earth. Worm bin composting:
is small-scale, but can be expanded to suit your household’s needs;
can be done year-round inside your home or basement (it’s not smelly or dirty);
uses any plant-based waste, including kitchen scraps and paper;
produces high-quality, organic fertilizer for your garden, and eliminates the need for chemical fertilizers;
is an inexpensive way to love your planet.
fee: $50 per person.
date: Saturday, October 4, 2014
time: 10 am – 2 pm
place: Unitarian Society of New Haven | 700 Hartford Turnpike | Hamden note: This workshop is limited to 20 participants.

(A note to our Jewish friends: We apologize for the fact that this is happening on Yom Kippur. Due to a variety of considerations, this date was the one on which we had to schedule the event for the fall. But we plan to present a second vermiculture workshop early next year, so stay tuned.)
Thank you for visiting Another Octave: Connecticut Women's Chorus. If you would like to join us for the fall season, please stay tuned for our upcoming open call for singers starting approximately the second week of August. If you would like to be involved, but not as a singer, we are always looking for help with fund raisers, production, and advertising. Plus, we always need volunteers to help out during our concerts.
