     In our ever growing environmental concious world, we have only just begun to tap into the world's oldest composters; the earthworm. If one thinks about it, just about all the dirt we walk on probably went through the gut of an earthworm.  Dwight Bohlmeyer came and shared his knowledge, and some worms, with us.  We discussed the food web of a compost pile, talked about what other kinds of critters one might find in a worm bin, and made mini worm farms with 2-liter bottles.
