Compost Goes to 10 GCS Gardens!

This year our Green Gremlins, Greenhouse, Faculty, and Lower School classrooms started and maintained 6 vermicompost bins. At the end of the school year, we brewed “compost tea” – a combination of rich compost castings and sugar that build a natural fertilizer and anti-microbial liquid for gardens and lawns. 10 faculty and family gardeners took some home. We look forward to finding out how their seasonal “crops” develop with their added boost!  Here’s a photo of one of our gardens – Ms. Adler’s tomato plants in New Jersey!  Beautiful!  It is a pleasure to see that our snack food wastes are being “recycled” to help grow more food.
