Tim and Liz from ‘Ormiston Grows’ visited the school to show us how to make our own wormeries.
First you need a plastic bottle. Fill it with a layer of stones.
Shredded paper makes a good layer of warm bedding.
Add a small supply of food: tea bags, banana skins, vegetable peelings, coffee grounds, are all good. Then place a layers of good compost soil.
Add lots of wriggly worms!
Finish off with a layer of dried grass and seal the top of the container.
Everybody worked together in their school home teams to make their own wormery.
It took very little time to make a wormery.
We gave their new homes name labels and found cool and dry places to keep them safe. Tim told us that every now and again we need to add a couple of teaspoons of water to keep the wormery moist.
