Worm Poop!

We put the finishing touches on our new flower bed at Glassel Park Elementary last week. We hooked up the irrigation, sowed seeds and most importantly… added fertility to the soil with our very own worm castings!

It is a universal truth that all children love worms. My special needs garden club is no different. I had them sift our worm bin, carefully separating undigested organic matter and worms from their castings. It is a tedious job but the joy of discovery when a worm is plucked from the castings was well worth the labor. The students were stoked to see how the worms had multiplied in our little bin, and any chance they have to get their hands dirty and hold a worm, or 9, is a great day in the garden,
