Keiki Explorer Club
"Worms Eat My Garbage" Keiki Style

In this workshop your keiki we will get “up close and personal” with worms, learning how our organic waste can be made into compost by feeding it to worms that eat food scraps, cardboard, newspaper, and junk mail. Keiki will meet the worms and learn the basics of the living soil food web of which worms play a critical part. We will be making small worm bins made from recycled containers to take home to house a handful of new wiggly friends, share a "worm" inspired snack and create recycled art with worms in mind!
