MicroHerding Invertebrates

 Registration is closed for this event
Learn to deal with Aquatic, Subterranean, Terrestrial, and Flying Invertebrates for composting and pest management, as well as food for fish, animals, and humans!

Raising invertebrates for food and farming can be fun, entertaining and rewarding - and meet many different needs.  

Join William Padilla-Brown for discussion and demonstrations as he takes us on a journey through many different invertebrates - starting with our two ancient aquatic invertebrates, Brine Shrimp and Triops, then our Subterranean Red Wiggler worms, followed by crickets, roaches, mealworms, waxworms, superworms, BSF larvae, hornworms, their beetles, moths, and flies!

Participants will get hands-on time, setting up small habitats to take home with choice of crickets, roaches, mealworms, and/or Red Wiggler Worms. The course will end with a demonstration on how to cook with edible insects and participants who wish may participate in an Entomophagy (the eating of insects).
