Green Steps Project: Composting

Another new project is composting!  We have started vermicomposting as well as outdoor composting.  We had 11 teachers start the year with introducing worm bins in the classroom.  Students have maintained the bins and, in the process, have learned lots about decomposition. 

Third grade students participated in a special DHEC workshop called “Can You Dig It” and collected data on different compost mixtures.  DHEC also provided OPES with an outdoor composting bin.  We have started putting in grass clippings and small amounts of food.  Fourth grade students wrote and made a video that tells about the composting process.  Next year, we hope to continue with the vermicomposting and expand the outdoor composting.
