"Ever since we discovered the Sprout House we've been fascinated by the role of worms in gardening / food-farming. This is a great resource with tons of fun and terrific interdisciplinary activities." - Reach and Teach

Our Two Cents

Trying to review this book internally was difficult as the text is intended for use in the classroom and geared towards an elementary level audience. However, the book is full of useful information on vermicomposting and contains a multitude of related learning activities. If you are a teacher looking to integrate a vermicomposting program into your curriculum, I recommend taking a look.
