Ms. Correia's Class had their vermicast harvest on May 21, 2012.  During the harvest, they separated the vermicast/worms from the unprocessed chunks.  After the harvest, students were able to separate the worms into 3 more additional worm bins which will be used by Mrs. Lactaoen, Mr. Matsuura, and Ms. Tasha Firestone's classes next school year.  The students had a fun time at the harvest!  The vermicast will be used in the school's Native Hawaiian garden.  Thank you to Mindy Jaffe, Waikiki Worm Company and the City and County for their support of this project!  Stay tuned for more information next school year!
