HAYS, Kan. -- What is one of the secrets to composting? Worms.

In a free presentation about using worms to recycle organic food waste, Dr. Jean Gleichsner, associate professor of agriculture at Fort Hays State University, will explain at the next Science Café how composting is simple and effective, beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26, at Gella's Diner, 117 E. 11th.

"The benefit of using worms is that the worms will produce a high quality compost and fertilizing liquid," said Gleichsner. "It saves water, energy and landfills, and helps rebuild the soil."

Gleichsner's presentation, "Vermiculture: Let Worms Eat Your Garbage," is sponsored by the FHSU Science and Mathematics Education Institute and is open to the public.
