Year 6 students have been teaching the younger students all about composting.  The Year 6’s explained the benefits of composting, what can and cannot go into a compost bin and how they can practice composting here at school.  The students made some compost stew to help nourish the vegetable garden so new life can grow.  They also explored the school’s compost bin where they mix the school’s food scraps together to make amazing healthy compost.
