Composting Effort Underway

Compost

Ninth graders Su Hae (Jessica) Jang and Imani Hawman have organized an effort to gather food scraps from the Northwood School kitchen. The food waste will be transferred to a compost tumbler adjacent to the school greenhouse/garden.

Jang and Hawman are collaborating with the kitchen staff and Sustainability Committee advisors and plan to collect two five-gallon buckets per week to start composting in the small tumbler.

The students plan use this experience to organize a larger composting system next fall to divert more organic waste out of the garbage stream and create valuable compost for the school garden.
