Worm Farmers

Simon came in from Wastebusters and taught us about Worms, Landfills, Composting and what we need to put in a worm farm. In a compost pile you would need it moist and not dry. Start with twigs and then add layers of nitrogen then carbon which is food scraps and leaves.
Simon helped us make Mini-Worm farms out of milk bottles. We added two tiger worms and then layered nitrogen and carbon into the bottle.
Simon also showed us our school compost made with our food scraps. Lots of worms are living in the compose and half of it is ready to go in the garden.
