Vermicomposting & Growing a Better Tomorrow, Today

Map pinWinnipeg, Manitoba

Our students are creating a vermicompost bin that our class will use to reduce landfill waste. We noticed much of our school lunch waste which ended up in the garbage could be composted. Then harvest the worm castings to grow plants to beautify our community, adding habitat, and creating food.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
