Worms, Sustainability, & Monroe Prison

I have been volunteering out at the Monroe Correctional Facility, teaching a class about music. I work with an organization called University Beyond Bars. It has been an amazing and challenging experience and has me excited about sharing my experiences there. It’s no secret that the prison population In the USA has skyrocketed in the last 20 years, reaching the largest prison numbers in the history of the world. I’ve met some amazing human beings that just want the chance to be human, and live life. When they heard about what I do as a teacher, they were really excited about sharing all the amazing sustainability work that they are doing involving worms and composting. They are building worm bins for schools- stay tuned for details on how to get set up with one!
