Compost Bins.


The next time you see these pallets they will be transformed by students (pictured) and their friends, into compost bins.

We have decided to build a compost heap at school.
The bottom will be some pallets and on the side too.
What we will put in it:  Food scraps, soil, paper, seaweed, leaves, and grass clippings.  In fact we will be able to out in anything which is organic!
This compost heap will be in the left corner of bottom grass.
If you would like to be involved we would appreciate people bringing in things we have listed above.  You could also bring in a spare adult who might be interested in helping building.  If you have one of those please get them to contact John via email or just drop in.
If you can bring in grass clippings, poo (not dog or cat poo) and leaves, in the next 2 weeks, please do because we will have a compost day  on Friday of week three.
We won’t  put all our scraps into the compost as the worms need some too.


We have had a look at a few designs like this one:


When it is built please do not touch unless you are putting the things of the list above inside it.
