At 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 5, soil scientist and Piedmont Master Gardener Dr. Linda Blum will present “Earthworms: Friend and Foe” at The Center at Belvedere, 540 Belvedere Blvd. in Charlottesville. To register for the free program, visit https://thecentercville.org/calendar/event/106826/3. Most gardeners view the presence of earthworms in their soil as a huge positive, but Blum will explain that earthworm activity is not all beneficial. For example, it can increase greenhouse gas emissions from soils, disrupt nutrient cycling within the soil and promote the movement of nutrient pollution from agricultural fields to adjacent waterbodies. Her talk will include many other surprising facts about the biology, geographic distribution and ecosystem impacts of native and invasive earthworms. It will also provide information on how to identify and control the spread of the most recent invader, Amynthas agrestis, the Asian jumping worm.
Modeled after pub quizzes in Ireland and the U.K., Geeks Who Drink is an authentic homegrown trivia quiz. It’s a great way to drink with friends, without burning brain cells. And it’s where useless knowledge means everything. Our quizzes cover everything from Hungary to The Hunger Games, from science to sports, from the Billboard Hot 100 to Better Call Saul. Each quiz consists of seven rounds of eight questions each, in a variety of formats, including audio and visual rounds. Teams can be up to six players, so bring your smartest friends (or some likable dummies)—or come solo. We can always help you join a team! No reservations needed, just show up! Winning teams get bar cash and other prizes, depending on the venue. Bonus questions sprinkled throughout the quiz will net you additional goodies. But mostly it’s about establishing your dominance—or at least pleasantly surprising yourself. You’re into that, right?
