Vermicomposting (British Columbia)

A project rich in minerals!

Reducing half the pollutant waste in your class is possible! Revolutionize the eco-friendly habits of your class by introducing them to composting! Our two amazing workshops will help your environmentalists better understand the natural decomposition phenomena and then apply this new knowledge to produce vermicompost, which is the transformation of organic waste into soil rich in vitamins and minerals by earthworms. A natural fertilizer that produces the best crop possible!

On the menu:

1) Flowers in the classroom (60 min)
