Eco-Kids Club: Wormy Composting

In February, the Eco-Kids Club met to learn about Wormy Composting with Kira Blacketor from the Allen County Solid Waste Management District. After her talk, Kira let the kids dig through a pile of worms, half composted food, soggy paper bits and worm castings. What fun!

I am a children's author with a new website for kids called MEET ME AT THE CORNER (, a series of free kid-friendly video podcasts for kids.

Geared to children ages 7-12, is a dynamic, interactive site, which encourages individual expression and participation through video submissions from children worldwide. Through these video pod casts, the site creates a community of children who learn the art of self-expression and storytelling through video. The site is free of charge. currently offers more than 50 three- to four- minute episodes. Recent additions include interviews with famous artists and writers, trips to New York City, San Diego, and Colorado, and introductions to unusual hobbies. New trips are added every three weeks.

I thought your readers might enjoy the current episode featuring a virtual field trip to the Queens Botanical Garden to learn how to build a worm bin.

Would you review our site and pass t on to your readers?

Thank you,

Donna Guthrie
