Hubby and Grace out in the woods collecting soil and worms to put in the container.
Organic material for the compost bin.
The bin almost finished. They were able to find about three dozen small earthworms to put in the container. Now the bin is in our closet doing its thing. We will keep it for two weeks to help show Grace what actually happens in the soil to become nutrient rich to plant. We then plan on using the soil we make to plant something pretty. Really looking forward to this unit in gardening. I also purchased a unit study from Amanda Bennett about gardening that we will use over the next month starting in another week or so. Also talked to a close friend about getting her kids and mine together once a week to do some gardening experiments/projects. Don't you just love spring.
