As a volunteer, help our staff engage our students through interactive demonstrations, teach sustainable practices that support a healthy planet, and inspire students to adopt sustainable practices in their own lives. We will be teaching almost 600 K through 6th graders at this event and we need your help sharing the our knowledge about composting worms!

  • Setting up / breaking down demo site
