Break It Down: Decomposer Exploration

July 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Green Teacher Network (GTN) on Friday, July 26, as we explore the transformative magic of decomposition! At this hands-on professional development, you will build a worm composting bin, learn how to grow mushrooms and take a guided forest walk to look for decomposers. You will leave the workshop with a worm compost bin and mushroom growing. 

Participants will participate in three workshops and learn how to grow mushrooms in the classroom, build and maintain a classroom worm bin, and walk in the forest to find the small animals and organisms that help break down organic materials.

  • Childcare is available for children 3 years and up (register your child here)
