The tiny tots at Geraldton’s Early Explorers Learning Centre have been given money to build a worm farm.

The children will collect their food scraps in a bucket and learn what can and can’t be composted in their sustainable garden, as well as the importance of reducing food waste.

They will introduce the worm farm and a compost bin along with a vegetable garden where children can learn to care for their environment.

Meanwhile, Bluff Point Primary School students will also take to the outdoors to build a vegetable garden.

Both projects were funded by Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants, a program that gives up to $1000 to primary schools and early learning centres initiating environmentally-minded projects.
