Schedule a Speaker
Speakers are available at no cost for classroom discussions about recycling, composting, vermicomposting or managing food waste. Presentations are grade/age appropriate for each age group and are interactive including bringing a working vermicomposting bin (with worms) to the class.
Speakers are also available for after-school clubs and home school groups.
Free Vermicomposting or Composting Bin
Schools with a garden can get one FREE composting or vermicomposting bin per year. The maximum number of bins a school can request is TWO bins TOTAL: one composting and one vermicomposting (awarded one per year).
Start a school composting program and teach kids about soil and the earth. Request a bin by submitting a letter on school letterhead signed by the school principal.
Address the letter to:
