Our Compost System
We have 3 garden compost bins near our gardens. Every classroom and the staffroom have compost buckets in them, where children and teachers can throw away their food scraps. Every Friday the enviro-group, World Savers, empty this food waste into the garden compost heaps. We have fun cleaning out the buckets! The scraps are covered by garden rubbish or dirt or leaves to keep the pests away. The food rots down into beautiful, healthy soil. Then we can spread the rich soil around our plants to feed them.
