Lessons for Life Lunchroom Composting
With the School year already in session, we're ramping up to take our Waste Reduction and Plastic Lifestyle lessons back into the schools.
With all five of the City of Asheville's Elementary Schools participating in our zero food waste program, we're striving to broaden the program into the Middle and High Schools this year.
With every meal the students are made responsible for all food and paper waste. "If it was every alive it can be composted" is the message we're teaching. What happens to all of that food waste? It's commercially composted by area waste reducer Danny's Dumpster.
As part of the program, the Schools all receive (for free) clean, nutrient rich top soil for their community gardens. No more waste Asheville!
If you would like to support this lifetime education program, please consider joining Asheville GreenWorks as a Member.
