Vermi Worm Composting in Grade 4

Last week, people from East Interlake Conservation District came to our class.  They showed us worms...but, not just normal worms!  They were vermi composting worms.  We put newspaper and dirt into a container to start them off.  Every week, we feed them about two handfuls of compost.  If you put in too much compost, you will have fruit flies in your bin.  They gave us 50 worms and a couple of egg sacks.  Every egg sack has about ten worms.  Now we have about 130 worms, but that's just an estimate!
