What is Compost?

Students will learn all about vegetables in this fun and colorful book by one of our favorite authors, Gail Gibbons.

This book explains which parts of certain vegetables we eat, as well as how vegetables are grown. Vegetables come in many shapes, colors, and forms. Gibbons provides a wealth of information about produce which will help us launch into composting in our cafeteria!

Composting is a natural biological process of recycling organic materials such as food waste, leaves into a dark brown, crumbly soil that smells like a forest floor. It’s amazing nutritious for your garden and lawn.

Composting is a great way to raise kids’ awareness of the environment by teaching them how to reduce waste. Kids learn through direct experience that they can make a difference and have a positive effect on the environment. Composting also helps kids understand exactly what recycle, reuse and reduce are and how the Earth is impacted.

The video below has a fabulous explaination of composting, however, our school composting bin will only contain FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.
