Composting Bins!

This year we have added four more compost bins to our greenhouse area.  We are using a colorful flower to indicate to others which bin we are currently filling.  Not only is compost waste gathered from the Foods & Nutrition classes, but also from our Cafeteria program.  We are also encouraging teachers to have a collection bucket in their classrooms / prep areas to collect compostable waste during the run of a day rather than people putting it in a regular garbage bin.  Compost bins were attained from the City of Surrey.  Once the soil from the bins is ready, it will be used to fill a raised garden bed that will soon be installed!
