Compost Fun at Alta Loma!

We learned all about the beauty of composting at Alta Loma and lots of vocabulary words to supplement the lesson! After touching and smelling (compost smells great we all decided) the compost out of the Alta Loma tumbler, the students practiced the new vocabulary with a fun word search!

Originally from Arizona, I was brought out to beautiful Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California where I will be graduating come December with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies.  I grew up with a love of gardening from spending summers on my papou's farm in Greece to helping my parents tend to our personal garden in Arizona.  My passion for the environment and gardening go hand-in-hand and I can't wait to incorporate lessons from my studies to the students I am teaching at Alta Loma!
