This year one of our team’s main projects was to create our School Garden to Compost Sustainability Cycle. Carrying on the work of last year’s team, we continued our school’s compost program, picking up compost from our 16 bins in the school hallways biweekly to be collected by the city. Adding on to this we fundraised to buy a composter for our school’s cafeteria program, so that food scraps could be made into valuable compost for our gardens. Using the cafeteria’s compost we planted a school garden whose vegetables will be used in the school’s cafeteria and thus composted.
