Worms take a bite out of your trash!

Monday, July 22, 2013 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Cover art for "Compost Stew"Dig in with worms! Debbie Krogwold of Waupaca County Solid Waste and Recycling will demonstrate how to use composting worms to reduce your trash and keep it smelling sweeter. Come to see the worms in action, learn about composting, share ideas, or all of the above. Suitable for all ages.

Here are some resources on worm composting, also called vermiculture:

Composting with Worms on the Environmental Education for Kids website.

The picture book Compost Stew is about composting in general. Compost should have an earthy smell when it is done right. The picture book I Stink is not about composting. It is about a garbage truck that picks up an alphabet of garbage. Maybe the truck stinks because people put too many things that belong in the compost in the trash instead. Pick out items that should (and should not) be composted with your favorite young reader.

This Home Composting brochure from the Wisconsin DNR provides a quick overview of composting. For more detailed information, see the Complete Composter brochure.

The book Let It Rot! The Gardener's Guide to Composting is useful for beginning and experienced composters.

Looking for more information? Ask a librarian to find the book, magazine, or website that is just right for you.

Our special project this week involves citizen science...collecting ants for the School of Ants! With a few basic supplies of index cards, plastic bags, and cookies we will trap ants to send to scientists who study the diversity and density of ants in the United States. You can help by setting up the traps, collecting data, or eating the extra cookies not needed in the traps. We will leave our traps outside for one hour, so you will have time to read, craft, or play between setting and collecting the traps.
