News about our school garden in Chevy Chase, DC

We started a “worm factory” or  vermicomposting in our garden.  Creating several worm habitats and feeding them a splendid diet of rotten food scraps, in no time we had rich organic matter to turn into our garden.  Along the way we learned quite a bit about how to improve upon and perfect our worm habitats…

We were surprised to find a lot of dead worms.  Only fat worms made it.  There were baby worms, fat worms, skinny worms, and middle-sized worms.  We fed the worms.  But anyone who dares to touch the worm compost is very, very brave.
