Atwater Ave Elementary Was Visited by Red Wiggler Worms

Worm Farming

At Atwater Avenue Elementary on January 25th, we had a lesson on composting. We took a bag full of various “trash” pieces and sorted them into recycling, compost or landfill trash. We learned about what compost is, how to best make it from “brown” (the round part inside a toilet paper roll and brown paper towels)  and “green” (produce food scraps, grass, leaves) and about what worms do in compost.

Miss Marisa, one of our teachers, brought her red wiggler worms from her compost, and they were quite the hit! Lots of squeals of delight made for a fun afternoon.
