    White Knoll HS Environmental Science students set up a classroom vermicompost bin under the direction of Green Steps mentor Jane Hiller. They learned to poke air holes in the lid of a used Styrofoam cooler. They then prepared damp newspaper bedding and buried some coffee grounds and an apple core before adding 16 red wiggler worms to the bin. They will manage the bin, watch the bedding transform into compost and then count their increased worm population in the spring.
