Class B students learn about composting and kitchen waste

Today Class B had a visit from Eloise Vestberg, who runs Aventerre, based in Volleges. She is an expert gardener and came to us today to discuss composting and how we can turn our kitchen waste into something useful for the garden.
Even if you don’t have a garden you can buy composting products that you can use on a balcony. Some children already knew a little about this, but they were all amazed to discover the different minibeasts (insects and worms) that live in the end product and break down the food waste into nutrient rich compost. As you can see from the photos they were very engaged!
