Worms!

Today Paige brought in some worms from her worm farm to show the class.    They are special stripy worms called Tiger Worms.  They are composting worms and they only eat food scraps, not dirt.  They don't like bright light and like to live where it is dark and damp.  Paige brought them into school in an ice-cream container with food scraps and newspaper inside.  They smelt a bit yucky, but it was interesting to watch them wriggling around.   Paige also brought us a present - a bottle of worm juice!  This is the waste that the worms make and it is great for your garden.  We are going to put some on our new vegetables.
We all thought that worm farms were a good way to recycle your food scraps and we thought that it would be a great idea to have one at school so that we could feed our apple cores and banana peels to the worms.
