Composting in the Chilcotin


Our vision was to divert food waste from our local landfill.


Facing challenges with traditional composting due to proximity to wildlife habitats, our school took steps to address the issue. With the LSF grant money, we procured a Lomi composter, enabling the composting of all food waste efficiently and safely. Moreover, the students played a role by creating educational posters to inform the school community about what items can and cannot be composted by the Lomi. This educational initiative not only ensures effective waste management but also raises awareness about sustainable practices.
The project’s significance extends beyond the school gates to the community. By selling our compost at the local artisan fair, our school will not only raise funds for the Lomi Composter filter but also spread awareness and encourage community involvement in sustainable practices. The project’s inspiration stems from the desire to preserve the natural beauty of the Cariboo Chilcotin region. Through these actions, our school not only mitigates climate change by diverting organic waste from the landfill but also contributes to environmental conservation and fosters a sense of environmental stewardship in the school community.

Reflection & Celebration

We are only 4 weeks into our LSF Action Project but a garbage audit shows that we are meeting our goal of diverting food waste from our landfill.
