We were split into two groups. The first group got on the bus as soon as school started.
|Eager beavers ready to go! Tyler a bit unsure.... maybe the smell was too much...|
|Nalanee, Shyla and Nirvana trying to show examples of each element of compost|
|Getting ready to make our compost with Chris|
|Camryn adding our green food layer|
|Tobey with the layer of water.|
The second half of our day we focused on how to make a worm farm. We were put into 4 different groups and had to complete 4 stations. At these stations we, watered the garden with worm wee (remember to dilute this so that it doesn't burn the plants!), ripped up newspaper to make a worm bed, Separated the worm castings from the worms and put the worms into their cosy beds, and took out the citrus and onions/chilli/spicy food that worms don't like.
|Shikarn found a delicious slug while he was looking through the worm fams|
|Ruavai thought the worm wee was gross!|
|Shyla was a pro with it :)|
|Jrae making the worms a nice bed|
