Discover why earthworms are key to the future of the natural world and design your own wormery to reduce food waste.
What is this challenge?
The world is running out of fertile soil to grow the food we need. But there’s one creature with a ‘superpower’ that can help us solve this problem – the humble earthworm! In this challenge, you will discover what makes worms our key partners in saving the planet’s soil – and at the same time, reducing greenhouse gases and helping tackle climate change. You’ll then design your own “wormery” – a healthy habitat for worms where they can transform your food waste into super-nutritious fertiliser to improve the quality of soil in your garden or community.
When can I participate?
What happens at the end?
