This week at Glenfeliz, students learned about composting with worms!
We created our worm farm by adding red wiggler worms, vegetable scraps, water, and shredded newspaper to the worm bin. This type of composting is called vermicomposting.
Check out our awesome worm bin! It will take a few months, but our worms will provide us with worm castings to add to our garden’s soil. Worm castings are a type of compost that helps make the soil healthy.
Students had a lot of fun holding the worms.
Look how much our pea seedlings have grown!
Garden Ranger Ashley setup a trellis for pea plants, and transplanted the plants into the garden.
We found some very hungry caterpillars! We counted a total of five on this milkweed plant.
Happy gardening and healthy eating,
