Community Garden Composting


To use our food waste to create compost for our Community Garden to then grow food for our students to eat, creating a sustainable cyclical habit.


– Went to the LSF Fredericton Conference
– Ideated on how the $500 could be best used
– Connected with Mr. McCallum, our Garden Champion
– Offset budget costs of the wood to build the garden to build 3 composting beds
– Had 2 days to bring interested students to the Composting beds to learn why and how we want to create our own compost
– Every Wednesday and Friday, students come to the back of the dining hall to meet the supervising teacher. They get gloves and the compost bin that is labelled to go to the garden that contains fruit peels and veggies that do not have any sauce on them.
– They cut up the food waste even smaller to help out with the composting process and spread it out over the compost pile

Reflection & Celebration

We are so proud of our action-oriented group, the Environmental Round Council, on how the led by action this year. All of these small conversations push along the process, but what is best is getting all the stakeholders in one room, agreeing to an action plan and having someone own that action plan.
