Here's Busy Izzy’s backyard friend, Wormee, to tell us all about making compost from food scraps.
"Hi friends! I’m Wormee, a "compost vermi"...
I lead my little friends through all the scraps.
We live inside the compost bin that Izzy has out back, of her little store in Green Grass Grove, we call "Nix & Nax".
I’m Wormee... and I'm on a journey.
Just a taste of rotting waste, we'll all be moving in. We're a positive advantage in Busy Izzy’s compost bin.
I LOVE compost and my friends and I feed on it and turn it from your food scraps into really useful fertiliser that's called 'Vermi-compost' because it is the product of the breakdown process helped by worms and usually red wigglers, like MEEEEE, and good friends of mine too. We all help to create the wonderful ‘plant food’, that you can spread around your plants and herbs in the garden.
Now, where is the best place to start? First, decide whether to use an open compost pile or a bin."
As Wormee says, he and his friends, help to turn food scraps, twigs and grass into nutritious fertiliser.
It's fun to make it all happen - Roxanne Kiely

Children are influenced by their parents, guardians, older siblings and sometimes their friends. They all become role models, whether they are a good or a bad influence.
When children see their parents, other adults and older children showing respect for each other they usually do the same with their siblings and friends.
Busy Izzy is a wonderful role model for all children and the Busy Izzy world is a great tool for parents and guardians.
With technology becoming more commonly used among children, it is crucial to utilise different media platforms and mediums in a positive light to change the way children learn.
Although research clearly demonstrates that well-designed, age-appropriate, educational television can be beneficial to children of preschool age, studies on infants and toddlers suggest that these young children may better understand and learn from books and real-life experiences than they do from videos.
Children love to learn new and exciting things. This is why it is important to not only entertain at a kid’s party, but make them aware of the importance of music, and movement, fun, healthy living, friendship, caring and loyalty.
