If you are looking for an excuse to visit the opirg office you could always try coming to visit our worms – yes, tucked away in a corner of the office we have red wigglers, the little guys who live in a big rubbermaid (TM) box with paper mulch – they eat our lunch scraps and really get excited about coffee grinds.

Part of the fun is setting up arrangements with other campus offices to use their shredded paper, or their coffee grinds.

If you are really nice to us, maybe you could even use some of the worm compost (their poo, really) in your potted plants, or something.

The big fancy word is vermicomposting – and you can do it too – under your desk in residence even! Our friends over at Green Venture can set you up.

Come say hi.
