In the Kids’ Activity area, the University of Illinois Master Gardeners will demonstrate how worm-composting can make “black gold” from kitchen scraps. Master Gardeners will also man the Insect Petting Zoo, where you’ll have the chance to meet Rosie the tarantula, Millie the millipede and other creatures up close and personal. And don’t miss the edible insects for your tasting pleasure and Madagascar Hissing Cockroach races – on Saturdays only!
