Secretary Julie Moore of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources visited Berlin Elementary today, where the students showed off their composting abilities.
This week marks international composting awareness week. Students gave the secretary a guided tour of the school, to show her how the processes works.
From discarding scraps into plastic bins, which feeds the class room worms. Worms play a roll in breaking down the waste, and in the end they are left with nutrient rich compost.
Compost is then used onsite to grow their vegetable garden. Teachers tell us this wouldn’t be possible with out the help from our state’s administration.
