Composting in the Classroom

Vermi-composting (worm composting) is an excellent way to introduce students to composting and soil conservation.  Since the 2011-2012 school year, Will County provided the materials needed for a teacher to begin composting with the students in the classroom.  Find out more about the program and how you can become involved.

Take a look at a great presentation from the Godley Park District, which received a worm bin  in the 2010-11 school year. This presentation shows how worm composting can be used to fulfill a wide range of Illinois learning standards. This demonstrates how a fun project can be a great learning experience.
