New pets at Lucan East! Our Worms have arrived!

4th class have been helping to set up our wormery which has just arrived. We had to create a nice cosy bed for the worms using coir (we think its from coconuts) and shredded newspaper. Then we added a little bit of food for them, we have to wait for them to settle in before we start feeding them too much. When they’ve made themselves at home they’ll be ready to eat all of our waste food and will produce amazingly fertile compost for the school garden! Stay tuned for further worm and gardening updates!IMG_7059 IMG_7060 IMG_7052 IMG_7055 IMG_7056
