The Solana Center's resident worms help them teach San Diegans about the beauty of Vermicomposting (composting with worms). They act as a demonstration site and nursery for raising and distributing worms to homes around the County. Help care for these amazing compost critters and promote sustainability in our community!

Volunteers help care for their worm nursery and demonstration site by separating worms from worm castings, feeding worms, and building new worm beds. This activity is great for kids and all levels of experience are welcome!
