Echo Bay Worms Coming to Desbarats!


The red wiggler worms from Echo Bay Central School will be visiting the
town of Desbarats on Saturday 2 June as part of the Sustain Algoma Expo.

Last fall, Clean North volunteers assisted student lead Peyton Orr and her
composting committee with the set-up of indoor worm composting boxes in
two classrooms at the Echo Bay school, the Grade 5/6 class and the J/S
Kindergarten class.  The students have been feeding the worms all winter
with fruit and vegetable scraps generated at the school through healthy
lunches and snacks.

It’s now time to harvest the compost for use in the school garden and this
will take place as a hands-on activity sponsored by Clean North.

So please come out this Saturday, June 2, and help us ‘sort the worms from
the compost’ between 9 AM and 2 PM in the Desbarats arena.

Other attractions at the Sustain Algoma Expo includes: Entomica, with
their live insects, Face painting, Smokey the Bear, and a Buffet
