Organic Magic with Worms

Vermicomposting, or worm composting, is an excellent way to convert household garbage into nutrient rich fertilizer. Cathy, from Cathy’s Crawly Composters, visited students at St. Alfred’s Catholic School on Tuesday, February 28th, to explain how composting with specialty worms, known as Red Wigglers, is a clean and environmentally friendly way to save tonnes of waste from going to landfill. Cathy and the children made up a worm bed using a container with air holes, a mixture of shredded paper products, a liter of soil with micro-organisms, some egg shells or lime, about 1.5 liters of water and a pound of worms, which is somewhere between 800 and 1000 Red Wigglers. The kids gave some of the worms, names before adding them to the worm bed, shrieking all the while. The worms will eat half their weight of scraps each day, or 3 to 4 pounds of scraps per week.
