Texas RedWorms visits Floresville Elementary

26 Oct

Texas Red Worms.com spent lunch today with 300 3rd graders from Floresville Elementary School.  We talked about composting, red worms, and how they could become red worm farmers.  The students have been composting for about a month. Each of the eight 3rd grade science classes will have their own redworm farm to help in their composting process.  Students are learning how to reduce waste and turn trash into nutrient dense castings they can add to plants and landscape around their homes and school.

The students asked some great questions and are eager to begin worm farming (vermicomposting).  Thanks to a bunch of smart, and well behaved students, Mrs. Davis, and the rest of the 3rd grade science department at Floresville ISD.
