That’s it. It’s simple. Everyone should have one of these babies in their HOUSE. And yes…that’s what I said…Worm Composting…IN YOUR HOUSE.
Because it turns your waste into gold. Because you can take food scraps (the stuff you throw in the garbage because you’re too lazy to go to the OUTDOOR COMPOST) and turn it into high quality plant food…using…worms.
It turns out…it’s pretty easy to do. You give these red worms what they need (a vegetarian diet, moist bedding) and they give the BEST POOP OVER! You’re garden will be eternally grateful – even if it’s just some herbs in a window.
My kids and I took a trip to one of our favourites spots last week – The Local Community Food Centre – to attend a Worm Composting Workshop. And it was super cool. They got to dig around for fat, moist worms; drill holes in their worm compost buckets all by themselves; hang out in the greenhouse – bonus!
As a family we love this place. We attended the Grand Opening last year (oh it’s come so far) and participated in the Do The Math Challenge. My son was a part of an Shovel & Pail program there (I wrote a blog about it). And I often film my LUNCHBOX KITCHEN SERIES there.
Liz Mountain is the Garden & Food Skills Coordinator and she is so WONDERFUL. I’ve seen her wrangle many a kidlet and she stays completely calm and is packed with knowledge. Thank you Liz, for all you do!
Worms are so cute. I can’t wait to put their hard work to good use.
LEARN TO MAKE YOUR OWN: There will be a Worm Composting Workshop (run by The Local CFC) as part of the Savour Stratford Culinary Festival KIDS’ TENT this year. Come on out!
