Compost Guests Arrive!

Our worms arrived for our first compost bin this Wednesday.  The Green Gremlins got to prepare their bedding, give them their first meal, and feel them squirm!  Click here for a video of the worms before they were set in the bin.  Chef Sheehan provided some of the kitchen scraps collected during Wednesday’s lunch.  The kids plan to collect scraps from lunch tables during the fall.    Is your classroom interested in having a compost bin? They are easy to maintain and a great educational resource.  Check out the upcoming Wormshop from the Lower East Side Ecology Center this month at Friends.  Composting from home?  You can set up your own bin easily, but if this is not an option, consider bringing your vegetable scraps to a local compost outpost.  Also, the map of compost station in NYC can be found here.
