Our goal is to implement a composting program at our school in order to educate students about the Earth's natural recycling process, and about how to compost the organic waste they produce daily - thereby reducing the garbage that needs to be trucked away. Students will learn about different types of composting systems for indoor and outdoor composting. Students will be directly involved in the construction and setup of the compost systems, and will maintain the systems as they produce usable compost. The resulting compost and "compost tea" will be used to support our school garden in growing food. Extra compost will be donated to Green Thumb to distribute to other sites.
