Students from Barry and Siena Heights Universities in the 2019 Adrian Dominican Environmental Leadership Experience program harvest worm castings. More than 80,000 worms compost 32,000 pounds of kitchen scraps from the motherhouse campus annually, diverting waste from landfills, reducing CO2 emissions, and creating a rich humus that is spread on campus grounds to enhance soil health.
