Division 13 has set up a worm-composting bin in our classroom thanks to the help of City Farmer Society who provided a workshop on how to start and care for our worms. We started with about 30 red wriggler worms, which will multiply as we continue to compost. Every week we feed our worms with healthy food scraps and have already noticed our waste being broken down into fresh, composted soil. We hope to add this soil to our school gardens in the spring as fresh fertilizer.
