School Composting


Composting is a wonderful teaching tool which can introduce and explain far reaching concepts like life cycle, the importance of death and decomposition, soil recycling, resource management, garbage and landfills.

Best of all, composting activities are just plain fun!  Children get to touch dirt, hold worms, build compost piles, set up and explore worm bins, analyze what they’ve eaten for lunch, and learn songs about worms and other wiggly creatures.

Various resources are available for teachers and schools in the unincorporated area and Scotts Valley to involve their students in composting and recycling through the Green Schools Program.
