Worm Party

Worms are now at Healthy Waltham.

We started a worm bin and it is filled with worms.  The bedding is filled with newspaper and the food they eat is all vegetable scraps.  The reason for vegetable scraps is because anything else will invite fruit flies, but not that worms eat many things!

Worms are really great. They are a bit smaller and redder than worms you would typically find in a garden, but these worms are red wigglers and they are the best worms for composting.
