Day 9 - Composting
Ok, so remember when I swapped out this particular challenge for another day because I was waiting for something important to arrive in the mail? Well, they did and they wiggled their way to Eel Ground all the way from Ontario.
Today we started our worm composter. The children had blast learning a bit about what worms can do and why, how worms are awesome recyclers and will be helping out our class by eating all our food scraps.
Did you know that worms (Red Wigglers) eat half their body weight every day?
A worm composter and run year-round and indoors, so we are hoping by the spring we will have some amazing worm fertilizer to help us grow some plants and maybe the school garden.
