Undergraduate student, April Vigardt, completed a 12-week study of the impact of vermicompost used as a greenhouse medium when growing broccoli starts. Vigard grew starts in pots, and compared the results with varying degrees of growing media mixed with vermicompost. After transplanting the starts, she took weekly measurements, recorded and analyzed the data.
