To eliminate the organic waste that is going into the classroom garbage bins and to increase the consumption of fresh vegetable produce among students.


The Grade 3 to 5 classrooms set up and ran a school wide Compost Program. Broken down compost material was added to soil that was made available to the students in the school and used to plant a vegetable container. Each student took the container home and by early summer, each family will have a planter full of salad vegetables to share together.
