I wanted to let you know, we have had fabulous feedback from
your workshops. Of the 3 eco-workshops we organized last year
(yours, one on bees, one for gardening) yours was hands above
in engaging the students. That from teachers and parents.
Thought I'd share with you some of the quotes:
My students really enjoyed the vermi-composting workshops
especially handling the wriggly worms. They learned a lot
about what happens to food when it is discarded from the session,
and having the vermi-composter in my room made many think
about the "waste" they were producing. Many children
brought apple cores back from recess and vegetable peels from
home "for the worms". It was a great success!
Ewan (age 11):
"I liked it. The idea of a worm farmer is pretty cool
and unique. I never thought about that before. They eat our
food waste and convert it to soil."
Madoc (age 9):
"Worms are important because plants can grow more easily
in ground with worms and with the compost that worms make.
We need plants to live so we really need worms! Plus it's
funny that we grow stuff in worm poo!"
Meredith (age 6):
Duncan (age 5):
"It was fun! It was dirty! They were squiggly and cute.
Some were long and some were miniature. They have five hearts!"
