It was a busy morning at the Joe R. Adair Outdoor Education Center as a few Master Gardeners put together all the worm bins for the 3rd grade teachers in the county in preparation for Team Ecology. Thanks to a slew of healthy red wigglers from Bonnie Hadden’s own worm composting bin we were able to put 12 healthy worms in each bin. Our other helper was a 4th grader who needed service hours for Beta Club. After the worm bin project was completed we worked a bit on the Butterfly Garden.
