It’s April, so that means Earth Day is coming up! Let’s celebrate by learning more about our home planet and what we can do to help our earth. We’ll keep items from ending up in the landfill by learning to reduce, reuse, recycle, and compost our waste. Then we’ll investigate a very special organism that helps make nutritious compost from food scraps! 

 

Day 1: April 14 – The Three R’s 

Get ready for Earth Day by learning about the three R’s…Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! Find out how you can help save Earth’s resources by reducing how much you use, reusing when possible, and recycling what’s left. Then put your new knowledge to work by building with recycled and reused materials. 

Day 2: April 21 – Do the Rot Thing

Keep your food scraps out of the landfill by composting them instead. Dig into Chabot’s vermicompost bins to see what types of waste can be composted, and learn how worms and other critters turn our food waste into rich, nutritious compost to feed our plants. 

Day 3: April 28 – Wiggly Worms

Get to know the wiggly worms that make vermicompost for our garden. You’ll have the opportunity to observe and handle real worms, learn about their body parts and how they move, and conduct an experiment to find out what kind of food they like the best!
