Last week the Grade 2 class went to the Compost Education Centre. We learned how the compost cycle works. We saw a poster of how much garbage gets put in the Hartland Landfill every day. We also saw tomatoes, but they aren’t ripe yet. We tasted leaves called sorrel, mint and nasturtium. We saw worms in the compost. We explored the garden and went in a greenhouse and saw lots of plants. We had to hold the plants very delicately. In school we are studying soil and compost, so we knew a lot when we got there.
In my life, I will compost!
