Earthworm inspires education program

THE humble earthworm has been the inspiration for a South-West business woman’s award-winning education program.

Bunbury-based Worms Galore proprietor Carmel Breman won the 1999 State Recycling and Waste Reduction Non-Metropolitan Award.

Environment Minister Cheryl Edwardes said the program demonstrated the benefits of recycling and waste management to children across the South West.

“Students who participate in the program go on to influence their families and friends about the work of the earthworm and encourage them to adopt good recycling and waste management practices,” Mrs Edwardes said.

“Earthworms are a practical and affordable way of diverting waste from landfill and this ultimately benefits the entire WA community.”

The Worms Galore program centred on three integrated activity books on earthworms. The books are aimed at junior, middle and upper primary school students respectively.

As well as conducting earthworm workshops for students and teachers, Worms Galore supplies earthworms for schools wanting to establish their own waste management projects.
