Field Trip Tours
Come See What We Do!
Located just minutes outside of Medicine Hat, schools/classrooms can come and have some fun with us during a field trip to our location. Worms are essential to the survival of our planet. Field Trips are an awesome opportunity to introduce the children/youth to the uniquely environmentally friendly nature of our business. Sharing and educating others, especially kiddos, about our innovative approach to ultimate Environmental Stewardship is such a great reward!
The field trips include an educational, hands-on, and fun way to learn about the benefits of worm castings, vermicomposting, biology, and of course about our WORMS! During the visit, we engage the children through a variety of interactive activities, such as worm bed exploration, identifying all life stages of the worms and cocoons, demonstrating how we harvest the beds, microscopic micro-biology presentation, making casting extract tea bags etc... Each activity includes an educational lesson that is tailored to be best received at their learning level.
As a result of our dedication to sharing what we do with others, the cost associated with field trips is $5/child. This price includes the entire visit, as well as, the casting extract tea bag that each child gets to take home!
