Get your kids started composting, or start a desktop composter for the scraps you'd otherwise throw away. This kit comes with a bucket and lid, 4 pieces of screen, 1 coconut coir block, 1 bag, and information about worms, how to care for them, and how to set the farm up.
You'll need to order, or purchase worms. We recommend Uncle Jim's Worm Farm, and ordering 250 red wrigglers. Once the farm is set up, it's very easy to maintain, requiring very little assistance from you, just the occasional food scraps.
In a few months time you'll have the perfect compost to add to your seedling mix to start seedlings for this year's garden, or the next round of house plants!
