Homeschool families will explore and learn together as they build their own worm bins and learn how to maintain them.
Come join us for this 4 session class to explore the role of red wigglers in composting. Each session will involve hands on experiments and guided observations(no worms will be harmed!) as participants discover the ins and outs of these amazing creatures. Each family will create their own worm bin and learn how to care for their worms at home. By the end of the session your worms will be making rich compost for your garden and house plants and you will have 500 new, low maintenance pets living in your garage.
Yes, this picture is the grossest thing on our website! It is a picture of our worms feasting on a rotten pumpkin.

Wonderful Worms! In our first session we’ll learn about the physical characteristics of a red wigglers and earthworms. Using our observation skills, we’ll conduct 3-4 different experiments to help us understand more about worm behavior. In preparation for building our worm bins we’ll begin to discover what worms need to be healthy (food and habitat).
Between session one and two participants will be asked to weigh and record their garbage (items that the worms can eat-we’ll cover this in class)
We will provide an observation journal for our class, please bring sharpened pencils and colored pencils with you. Dress warmly.
