The GardenQ hybrid worm composting system, is a unique layered setup that is used year-round. It is roughly 6′ x 6′, and is installed in a berm at the north end of the WonderGarden.
Red-wiggler worms, added in early May, have already begun turning food scraps into rich soil through a process called vermicomposting. WonderLab’s goal is to lessen our impact on landfills and reduce C02 emissions. Putting ALL museum food waste into this new composting system is a great start. Take a peek at this large, permanent compositing exhibit when you stroll through the WonderGarden.
For a limited time, you can Adopt a Worm when you donate to our “Bloom with WonderLab” fundraiser this spring. With your minimum gift of $25, you may submit a name for your worm and it will be added to the official Worm Registry below! (one name per donor please)
