Week of May 13th:

Today’s program featured Lauren and Matt Cain who own the ELM Dirt Company. ELM Dirt makes natural fertilizer products derived from red wiggler worms. Their mission is to rethink the way we grow plants to create healthier soil, plants, and the world by learning from what nature has perfected to produce superior-quality products.

These students were celebrated for completing two years of working with their mentors through our REACH program at Bishop Ward High School in Kansas City, KS. This program was founded in 2005 by Rotary members. Both students have major scholarships at the University of Kansas.
