Community Education-Worm Bin Project

In partnership with the Compost Education Centre (CEC), the VHS is funding the purchase of
100 compost bins/worms for distribution to non-profits and schools.

These bins will supply everything needed to get started with vermiculture.

More information on vermicomposting can be found here:

For more information, or if you know of a group which would like to receive one of these bins, please contact us at and we will put you in contact with the CEC.

Worm Bin Project

We launched our worm bin project, together with our partner the Compost Education Centre, on August 25th. Here is a brief photo-essay of the event [photographs courtesy of M. Adams and P. McGuire]
