Vermiculture Just One Part of the Tempe Garden Oasis

Worm Farming

This week, the garden got its first visit from a group of third- and fifth-graders from Kyrene de los Niños Elementary School in Tempe. The children were there to learn about pre-planting, composting, vermiculture and starting seeds.

The kids got a big kick out of vermiculture, which they learned is a fancy term for compost created by earthworms. The worms are used to digest food waste, shredded paper and animal manures to build a rich soil for planting.
