The Primary Ecology Series focuses on instilling in children a deep respect for the living world and the earth's natural resources. Children will take part in composting and learn why waters, air, trees and even color are so essential to life. The Primary Ecology Series does not use a band-aid approach in solving environmental problems and allows children to understand connections between themselves and other living and non-living things.

What is vermi-composting?When you feed leftover food to worms, you are vermi-composting. Whether you do it at home or at school, vermi- composting is one of the most important ways you can help the environment. Watching worms in action will also teach you a great deal about how nature works.
