Workshop on Edible Gardening (2021)

A wormery converts kitchen trash into nutrient-dense compost by using specific composting worms. We have our wormery at Ang Mo Kio Secondary School. They don’t stink, take up very little room, and provide excellent organic fertiliser for our school’s plants. In April, we held a workshop for members of the Environmental Club to learn the ins and outs of managing our school’s very own Edible Garden (such as watering, weeding, and pest observation) and how to maintain it regularly ( e.g. pruning, harvesting, pest control). Participants will be able to perform basic garden upkeep and acquire a passion and interest in gardening and nature result of the three-day session.
