Successful vermicomposting, composting with worms, depends on the container having good air circulation so a glass vessel will not work. For all the information you could possibly want on the art and science of vermicomposting visit the City Farmer and the University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension websites.
Did you know that the National Wildlife Federation website has a new Kidzone feature? Check it out next time you have a school project. It's great! Organized to be age specific, there are four age ranges to choose from so you are sure to have projects just right for your child.
And one final comment, next time a science fair comes around look at the Yahooligans feature on experiments and science fairs.
