My students need two composting starter kits with trays, worms, and bedding.
My students in College and Life Prep are learning a variety of skills in our class which is a take on Home Economics with a twist of going to college and living alone. My students have a variety of interests, and we try to do things to help them be ready for in living sustainable ways in the future. Sadly, our rural and remote school does not have the funds to budget for new electives, so we are a completely DIY and BYO course.
We are fortunate to have breakfast provided in our classroom, but the amount of recyclables and food waste that ends up in the trash is massive.
Few of them practice recycling or composting outside of school and our school recycling program is very limited.
My hope is that through teaching my College and Life Prep and the other students in my classes about the ease of composting and recycling, they will be better prepared to make smaller footprints on the earth.
Many of my students have limited access to composting and recycling in our small community. To help them prepare for greener and more sustainable living, they need to learn what tools are available to them and get comfortable with the ins and outs of waste. We have school-wide breakfast and I have many students come to my classroom to eat their lunches. Our school does not currently have a strong commitment to recycling and lots of recyclable and compostable items are put in the trash. We will set up the composting starter kits in our classroom. This will allow us to check on the system routinely and keep it going during the cold winter months (most of them for our Yooper landscape).
We will be taking our breakfast, lunch, and snack food scraps and adding them to the composting bin with the worms and bedding.
Once we have finished the composting cycle, we will add the compost to our classroom garden which will then in turn be used to harvest our own herbs for cooking days. By learning the cycle of our food to soil and back again, my students will better understand the value of food, and how to live more environmentally focused in the future.
