During the in-school program, you will learn about composting using worms during a 50-minute hands-on lesson where they either create their own worm farm or create a garden starter using repurposed newspaper to plant a seed or seedling in homemade compost to take home. During the virtual hands-on experience, students will join a 50-minute on-line class through Ring Central or Zoom or other virtual meeting application and work to create a working “worm farm” in real time, guided each step of the way by Youth Environmental Alliance ecology and gardening experts. Students will prepare for each class in advance by collecting readily available materials and household recyclables.
