KwaNgubeni Wormery Workshop and Water Cycle in the bag
Posted by Kwa-Ngubeni Primary School, South Africa on 1 October 2020

Encouraging nature to do it work is one of the principle of permaculture which is rooted in KwaNgubeni Primary School, Wormery workshop was conducted in the school to ensure that their soil is fertile, this will enable seedlings to grow well without using fertilizers that will affect soil fertility and productivity. Learners learnt vital skills when they were taught to make their own worm farm by using what will be described as WASTE to dispose in the worm farm container. After the lesson on wormery and worm farming, learners from grade 3 learnt about water lesson and its fundamentals such as transpiration, evaporation, accumulation, condensation, and precipitation. They then went on to make their own model of how our Earth act as a greenhouse by reusing the same water resource over and over, grade 3's made their own "Water Cycle in the bag" depicting that phenomenon.
