As a part of experiential learning, students of gr6 A&B made a short trip to the manufacturers of vermicompost unit Kanakapura main road on the 10th of February 2023.
Vermicomposting is the scientific method of making compost, by using earthworms. They are commonly found living in soil, feeding on biomass and excreting it in a digested form.
Vermiculture means “worm-farming”. Earthworms feed on the organic waste materials and give out excreta in the form of “vermicasts” that are rich in nitrates and minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and potassium. These are used as fertilizers and enhance soil quality.
This field trip gave a good exposure to students on the importance of vermicomposting and it’s benefits in long run to attain sustainable development in the field of agriculture and irrigation purposes.
We look forward to more such visits!!!
