Need some help with schools.....

Hey guys, I am trying to get into a few schools around my area to talk to the kids about vermicomposting and the like, and would like any suggestions about how to go about it. If any of you have done this any tips you can give would be great. Also if anyone has had to send any kind of official letters and info to schools or the people who run them, those may help to. Thanks guys Grady from LouisianaSee More
