Build a Mini Worm Bin

Build a Mini Worm Bin

Lesson from Oregon Ag in the Classroom.

Description:
Discover why earthworms are considered a gardener’s best friend. The mini worm bin, or
“wormery”, built in this activity allows students to observe the worms as they convert plant
material into rich compost. These wormeries are easy enough to build that you may wish
to make more than one. Consider having the students feed different types of plant material
to the worms in different jars and observe how quickly/slowly worms can break down
different material.
