Monthly Meeting & Live Food Workshops – October 23rd

Our next club meeting we will be doing Live Food Workshops where members can create their own live food cultures to bring home!

During the meeting we will learn how to create various cultures, keep them going, and how to harvest them!  These will be hands-on breakout sessions of ~5 people per culture at a time.  If we have enough variation of cultures we will do rotating stations so people have an opportunity to create different ones.

So far we have…
White Worms
Vinegar Eels

Are there any members out there that maintain other live food cultures that would be interested in sharing their cultures and teach others how to? All we ask is for you to bring enough supplies (including containers) for at least 10-15 people to create their own cultures (OVAS will reimburse any expenses with prior approval and receipts).  Please post in the forum if you can bring some cultures, and PM Gilbotron if you have any special needs to run a workshop.
