Compost and gardens
The functional skills class is making a garden. They will grow lettuce, spinach, cherry tomatoes, and other veggies. They already made a compost bin, because they cook each week in class, and now they can dispose of the left overs in a more earth friendly way. They measured, drilled, and created the compost box on their own. They will be growing the seeds in their classroom and will transplant the sprouts to the garden when it warms up, in the spring. Sarah's favorite part of the activity is that they can plant food. Autumn liked "to get dirty!" Two thumbs up to this earth friendly class!
