Church Lench composting mission!
The Eco-council decided that one of the areas they would like to focus on is creating less food waste at school and being able to reuse food waste to help the environment.
The children looked into having a compost bin in the school grounds and reusing food waste collected at snack time (fruit peelings/cores) and waste from the kitchen and during lunch time.
Miss Curnock ordered a timber compost bin for the Eco-council and has made it rodent proof and last Friday put the compost bin in the school grounds ready to use.
Today the Eco-council discussed ways to let the rest of the children at school know and understand about composting. They together have decided to design posters explaining key facts about composting and what can and cannot be composted.
The children have also decided to do an assembly to the school talking about the importance of composting.
Here's are new compost bin!
Did you know...
If you plant mint around the compost bin, it keeps rodents away as they don't like the scent.
