Taking waste reduction to the next generation! By using red wiggler worms, you can compost indoors and help nature to recycle its nutrients, while reducing the amount of waste that you produce. Explore the stages of decomposition, as well as how the worms help the process along. Each participant will have the chance to make and bring home their own mini worm-bin allowing them to follow this process through its different stages. Presented by Lower East Side Ecology Center. For ages 5 and older.
