My students need 2 composter bins to implement their cafeteria-to-garden composting project. These composting bins are the perfect height for wheelchair access as well.
"The Green Thumb Growers Guild" That's what we named ourselves. GTGG is an after-school group of fifteen students who scream for joy when we announce things like, "Today is manure day!", or "We're going to recycle 200 milk cartons to use as seed pots." Whatever activity we do, we grow together.
Green Thumb Growers are a group of 15 students from 3rd and 4th grade at a public elementary school in the Northern Catskills.
Our students have incredible spirit, energy, and a real desire to learn and grow. Students in the Green Thumb Growers program meet twice a week. We've become like a little family, taking care of one another while learning about growing plants and horticulture. Our school has students from incredibly diverse economic and family backgrounds. Most of the students in the after-school program are eligible for reduced price or free lunch, and the after-school activities provide them with a snack and a safe and warm place to be together before heading home on the bus.
Students in the Green Thumb Growers Guild recently created a proposal to the school principal requesting permission to establish a composting program through food waste from the cafeteria. Students have begun discussing how food will be collected in the cafeteria, prepared a collection bin to use inside the cafeteria by colorfully painting an old plastic garbage can, and have identified the kind of compost bins they would like to use in the garden area behind the school. Green Thumb Growers Guild members will help educate other students about how food waste can be used productively, and the entire school will learn by seeing their food become the soil that grows more food.
The compost bins requested for this project will allow students to start a food composting project they have discussed and planned for.
The compost bins in this proposal will also allow us to create an inclusive composting system for our wheelchair bound students who would like to participate and learn about composting.
