ABC Wednesday's letter is W and what could be better than WORMS for today's post!
Actually my daughter is the one who took these photos and posted the information on her family's blog. I'm just borrowing it.
They live in Sydney, Australia.
It makes me so happy that their local council is setting up a 1-year program to see what it's like for families to do their own composting.
I wish our regional council in the Jerusalem Hills would do something good like that.
Naomi's family was selected for the worm farm program.
Several days ago they received the worms and the equipment.
My grandson Dean was enthusiastic about breaking up the coconut "brick" in a bucket of water.
That was the worms' food for the first few days, and now they have advanced to a diet of fruit and vegetable scraps from Naomi and Guy's kitchen.
Eyal chose to watch while his big brother and mother got their hands right in there and set up stacking plastic bins that will house the worms.
As I understand it, the "worm juice" (worm pee) improves the soil in the worm farm and turns it into good fertilizer that can then be added to the plants in the yard.
Have fun, kids! Good onya!
