Classroom Composting

As adults, we're a bit squeamish about creepy-crawlies like earthworms but KIDS LOVE THEM! A worm bin in the classroom is not just a great learning tool about natural eco-systems and the food cycle but also a really practical way to compost your classroom food scraps into healthy soil. That's why we present to you....the Worm School (say it quickly a few times and you'll get the lame pun). We have a sneaky feeling that the students are likely to bring in more fruits and veggies for lunch just so they can feed their wormy friends the leftover peels.

The Worm School is basically our stacking worm bin, the Worm Studio, but with added curriculum and fun activities thrown in to empower teachers (including you, the homeschooling parent) to deliver fun learning content for classrooms of all grades. We're working hard to develop cross functional learnings and constantly strive to improve our offering.

If you are a teacher and reading this, we know school budgets can be hard to navigate and funding might be tight for your classroom. We don't want the lack of money to come in the way of an educational experience so reach out and we will try to work something out.

If you are someone with the authority to grant funds or have the ability to collect funds to include worm schools in your school, reach out to us at compost@theboxoflife.com, we would love to talk to you!
