The children listed to excerpts from the book, Kids Can Compost by Wen-Chia Parker. To compost, one needs: greens, browns, water, air and heat. The greens include items such as veggie and fruit scraps, coffee grounds, tea bags, and fresh grass clippings. The browns include leaves, paper products, cardboard, wood chips, egg shells and dry grass clippings.
We have both a worm bin and a compost bin in the school garden.
