Compost with Me!

This week at Sixth Avenue, we learned about compost and how it benefits our garden! We learned that the key ingredients are:

Carbon, Nitrogen, Water, Air, Bugs and Dirt.

We even got to find these ingredients in our garden to make our own compost.

Take a peak at our day!

Carbon is our key ingredient in compost.

Carbon is our first key ingredient in compost.

Children, teaching and food are three of my favorite things! With my school gardens, I get to teach children about gardening, food sustainability and water conservation. I love using science, math and nature to solve everyday problems.
