Bugs & Bytes: Exploring Insect Farming as Food of the Future!
Presented by WUNDERgrubs
Join WunderGrubs to explore the super powers of mealworms! We will explore a mealworm vertical farm in Midtown near Piedmont Park on the Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail.
Come learn about the mealworms and all of the cool ways they can be used to help solve many of today's environmental problems as a food, feed, and fertilizer, plus so much more!
There will be a virtual Scavenger Hunt March 14-18, 2022 with prizes and two drop-in, in-person tours Saturday, March 19, 2022 10-12PM and 2-4PM.

Limited parking is available on site. Paid parking may be available at nearby Park Tavern, but do not park at any business across the street (you will be booted/towed).
The Grub-a-Dub Shack is a shipping container just north of the entrance to Park Tavern along Monroe.
The 27 Bus takes you to Piedmont Ave NE & 14th St NE which is a 0.9 mile walk across Piedmont to the site. The 809 Bus takes you to Monroe Dr NE & Cooledge Ave NE which is directly near the site. The site is also directly off of the Eastside Beltline Trail.
Wundergrubs is committed to the safety of all the little critters that visit the Grub-A-Dub Shack. As of February 26, 2022, the City of Atlanta has dropped its mask mandate. Masks are recommended outdoors (ages 4+), within six ft. of another guest, especially when engaging in activities within close proximity. Masks are required indoors (ages 4+), at all times. We can't wait to bug you.
As with all ASF events, we ask you to take care of yourself and your community. Stay home if you feel ill, get vaccinated and mask up when in close proximity to others!
