Flora to Flora describes our school project as we will recycle produce to make soil to create more produce. Our Environmental Action Team has been active in establishing our recycling initiatives.

To encourage green waste recycling, students will be involved in the process of making compost. Students will help collect food scraps from classes and put them into the compost bin.

Once the compost is ready, classes will use the compost in a variety of planting experiences. Some examples of plants include succulents, Robinia seed pods, sunflowers, grass seed caterpillars and vegetables.
