Worm farms in schools programme

The Environment Centre is committed to educating Hawke's Bay's young people about sustainability. We run education sessions for schools on worm farming which teaches kids about responsible food waste recycling and how we can work in partnership with insects for the benefit of creatures great and small. Kids learn about the uses of worm tea and castings.


A worm farm is an interesting and interactive way of engaging kids in waste minimisation principles.  Our Worm Farms in Schools programme is generously funded by Hastings District Council, and provided in Napier City region by Napier City Council. For more information, email Worm Farms in Schools Educator - Gabriel Hurford-Lorenzo
