School Projects We went to the schools to teach children how to create worm bins so
they have an opportunity to start composting. We let them know where
they can get free bins, how to drill holes in the sides and bottom
of the bin. We taught them that after the holes that they put the
drilled up bin into another bin so it could catch the worm’s tea.
To start to worms habitat, some soil should be put in the bin and
the worms are then to be added. Then they should put the food in and
after it is settled on the soil, they should cover everything up
with shredded newspaper that is moistened for bedding.
After we taught them how to create the bins we let the class we
visited keep the bins in hopes that they learn how to compose and
create their own bins at home so they can create their own gardens
or use that soil for their plants.
