1. With the help of my science teacher, we constructed 10 × 1 × 1/2 meters Vermi Compost beds in sheds that protect these beds from direct sunlight and rain. 

2. We collected coconut, banana, and sugarcane leaves. We made them into 3- 4 inches layers. This inner layer was wet with water. 

3. We collected the wet waste from Mid Day Meal to fill the bed. We were careful to avoid glass, polyethylene, rubber, and metal objects in the bed. 

4. After two weeks of making the bed, we kept a thousand earthworms per square meter and covered the bed with Gunny bags to maintain 30 to 40% of moisture. 

5. After 60 days we collected the first manure. The second time we got the manure within 40 – 50 days. 

6. By using this Vermi Compost we can reduce the investments in chemical fertilizers and other pesticides. The quality of the soil and agricultural produce increased.
