Students start and maintain their own vermicomposter (worm composter) in the classroom. If properly maintained, a vermicomposter does not have an odour. Students may be motivated to bring healthier snacks to school to feed the worms with their food waste. Alternatively, the workshop can focus on starting and maintaining an outdoor composter.
For schools in Oakville, this workshop is offered through a partnership with Oakvillegreen Conservation Association.
