http://sanfernandovalleyirissociety.org/facebook.gif   Congratulations to Christine Griego-Anderson  this years recipient of the David T. Ross Memorial Service Award


Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Paul Vander Werf UE is considered to be the “Worm Whisperer” of the Wild West.  Paul is a member of the

National Garden Club Gardening Consultant and he is the California Garden Clubs Vermiculture Chairman.

Vermicomposting is the product or process of composting using a mixture of vegetable and yard waste

and earth worms.

Paul has lived in Southern California his entre life and currently resides in Trona, CA.  Born June 10th in the

China Lake area Paul graduated from the University of Redlands with a BS in Business Management.

Being a Former Senior Airman for the Hawaiian National Guard and other National Guardsman positions

has prepared him to raise his two daughters Veronica and Zoie. 

While worms were once considered a bad thing in the garden, Paul will be giving a PowerPoint

presentation and will demonstrate the many uses vermicomposting has in various garden situations and

useful tips on how to care for your worms, (like never feeding citrus peels to worms).  Paul will also teach

us how to make our own worm bins and how to get the worms casting for use in your own garden. 

I hope you all come to the July 6th meeting and learn something new as well as show your support for the

Speaker and our Club.



Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Canoga Park Women's Club,
