To help the nursery children understand why we put things in the compost bucket, 2 members of the Eco Comittee came to talk to the afternoon group. Hannah and Marie explained to the children what can and can’t go into the green compost bucket in the nursery. We then went with them to the big compost bin in the woods. We saw the compost at the bottom of the bin and Marie tipped our fruit and vegetable waste into the bin. The buckets have to be cleaned, and we watched the girls wash them out. We helped by drying the buckets.
We are going to try and cut down on the fruit and vegetables that go into the compost bucket, by choosing our snack carefully. We are going to all try to remember to put our fruit and vegetable waste into the compost bucket, and not in the bin.
