A Surprise Visit at Wilton Place Elementary

While we were harvesting beets for a big salad, Mrs Meredith brought her worm farm to visit the garden. The students were very excited to see the worms and we got to have an impromptu mini-lesson about food waste and nutrient cycles. Then, Mrs Meredith had another surprise; the worms are ready to make a new home in the garden! At the end of class, we added all the worms to our compost pile in the shade where they can start making rich soil for all our happy plants.
