North Elementary Presents Compost Project

Posted: Updated:

Over at North Elementary School, Students presented a vermicomposting project they've been working on with the help of a WVU professor to their parents.

Students in Mrs. Summer Fagan's class have created a habitat for "red wriggler" worms.

The worms "recycle" left over vegetable refuse from the school kitchen by converting this waste into soil and compost tea.

This project helps to create an environmental ethic in children while learning science, math, and language arts.
