Worm Farms - Spring Time Activities!

Thursday, September 15, 2016 2:16pm

Today our kindy Children started their very first worm farm!

Spring is a great time to get children interested and invested in their outdoor environment. Planting quick to grow plants, herbs and vegetables is a great place to start and what better way to keep these fertilised than with your very own worm farm!

Worm farms are a great way for pre-schoolers to learn about composting from start to finish, how the scraps in the kitchen can be re used instead of thrown into the bin, feed the worms who in turn produce great fertiliser for the garden both liquid and soil.

We have attached a link to a step by step guide on putting together a worm farm. (Worm farms can be purchased from most hardware stores or you could have a go at making one yourself!) 

Instilling awareness about the environment and how to care for it at a young age is a great investment in all of our futures!
