“Entertaining, educating, and focused.  The students came away with an understanding of vermi-compost and how composting can help our environment.  Information was given in a hands-on manner with students touching the different types of soil, hoiding the live worms, and viewing the compost bin at work.  It was a workshop where students were actively involved.  Mike was funny, engaging, and full of knowledge that supported our grade 4 curriculum.  Thanks for the presentation.”
