BEST WAY TO GET LITTLE KIDS NOT TO STEP ON WORMS
Feed a Worm, Not a Landfill
Matthew Sheehan, a former elementary school teacher (and father of a first grader) has overseen the implementation of 15 worm composting bins at P.S. 146, The Brooklyn New School, part of a larger project he has in mind for converting cafeteria waste into compost. Called "Feed a Worm, Not a Landfill," Sheehan's idea would see 100 percent of school food waste turned into compost by vermiculture compost systems (VCSs), which would then be sold and/or used on the school's garden. And then little kids would start naming individual worms, which would be cool.
