WOW! What a great time we had playing in the dirt and learning all about worms. We met at the Community Resource Centre on Joyce Avenue across from the First Credit Union, where there is a worm farm in the backyard.
The folks there have been raising earthworms for their kitchen garden and compost bins and it was time to see how many worms had been raised so they invited our members to come and help with the counting, measuring and weighing of the wrigglers. Worms are incredible and often overlooked little creatures that serve a purpose by mixing and adding air to the soil.
