LIVINGSTON, NJ – In celebration of Environmental Justice Month and in recognition of the need to improve and maintain a healthy environment – especially for paint communities disproportionately affected by pollution – the Livingston Justice Community Action Group recently reached out to the Essex Environment Center County teamed up to offer a composting course for children and a worming lab.

During the virtual event, Livingston-based Heather Amendolara, a naturalist and educator at Essex County Environmental Center in Roseland, taught a large group of elementary school children how to reduce waste and better care for the earth by educating them about composting and sanitation them to the earthworms that make composting possible.

Before class, Livingston Justice provided laboratory kits to approximately 100 participating children from Livingston and the surrounding communities that included a magnifying glass, vegan rubber worm, dissection tools, and a dissection sheet. All attendees had the unique opportunity to see laboratory tools being used at the Essex County’s Environmental Center and were encouraged to take their magnifying glasses outside to see real earthworms.
