After harvesting worms from 3 different tubs we divided the worms up to make two new vermicomposting tubs. The compost made by the worms will be put to good use in someone's garden.

All winter the red wigglers (worms) have been eating vegetable and fruit waste. Their castings (poop) make excellent soil! The whole process is called vermi-composting. It's a win,win situation!

The students of Westmount School earned the right to Duct tape two teachers to the gym wall. They exceeded the goal of raising $7,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation by $800. Mr. Paice and Mr. Silversides are two very stuck-up teachers. Way to go Westmount!

The Grade 2/3 class and the Pre-K class planted a garden at the Yara Community Gardens. We planted sunflowers, corn, potatoes, zucchini, carrots, pumpkins, dill and radishes. The produce from the garden will go towards the Pre-K nutrition program.

I have been reading the book "Owls in the Family" by Farley Mowat. The children are really enjoying the adventures of Billy so far. I thought it would be interesting to dissect owl pellets so I ordered them from a science catalogue. When they came in we went to work. The children were so engrossed with the work that all you could hear for an hour was the excitement of finding another skull or a leg bone or some ribs. It was really interesting to discover the remains of rodents, voles and shrews. In case you didn't know, owls swallow their food whole and then cough up the fur and the bones in a nice, compact package called an owl pellet.

These pheasants went to a farm last night. They will stay at the farm for about 4 months before they are released into the wild. This project is supported by the local Wildlife Federation.

We've been incubating pheasant eggs for the last three weeks. We started out with 30 eggs. In the end we only had three chicks hatch. It was disappointing but at least the children got to hold the chicks.
