Worm Composting Program: The Wormery
Our latest green initiative at Western Fair District is an on-site worm farm. Noticing a need for our compostable green waste, we turned it into natural rich fertilizer through vermicomposting practises.
We would also like to send out a BIG thank you to those who have supported #TheWormery so far. Your contributions of green waste are helping us reduce emissions in the community and making our neighbourhood a little better place…one worm at a time!
