Vermicomposting in Schools Webinar


Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT

ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:  Having a worm bin in your classroom can provide several exciting, hands-on learning experiences. In this session, you’ll learn how to make an inexpensive worm bin and use it as a teaching tool for math, language arts, science, history, art and more. Some schools even have larger bins to feed their lunchroom waste to worms!

Vermicomposting is a process that relies on earthworms and microorganisms to help stabilize active organic materials and convert them to a valuable soil amendment and source of plant nutrients. Earthworms will consume most organic materials, including food preparation residuals and leftovers, scrap paper, animal manure, agricultural crop residues, organic byproducts from industries, and yard trimmings. This webinar, organized by Keep America Beautiful and the US Composting Council, is designed to provide information and resources about vermicomposting organic materials in your school or classroom.

PRESENTER: Rhonda L. Sherman, Extension Specialist, Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, North Carolina State University.
