In a space-saving bokashi system, effective microorganisms transform all types of kitchen waste into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. All equipment, materials and handouts provided and included in fee. You'll leave class with a working indoor composting system in the form of a bokashi bucket.

ECOL:703 It's OK to Eat the Weeds-Wild Edible Plants of Spring05/06-05/06  

The next time you weed your garden, you might find you have the makings for a unique dish! Join Dr. Catrina Adams, Ph.D. in Paleoethnobotany (how people have used plants in the past) to learn about some of the common edible plants that grow in and around St. Louis in the spring. Discover where to find them, how to identify and collect them, and how to eat them! Then, take a tour of the campus to identify edible and useful plants you probably walk past every day. Some wild edibles are lovely native plants that you may want to cultivate in your own backyard. Others might be growing in your lawn or garden already, for better or for worse! Course meets the curriculum requirements for the Master Naturalist program.
