Compost Program Expanding

20111018-091121.jpg

Thanks to parent volunteers, we are now bringing the Monday fruit peels and cores to the Union Square Green Market! Adding to our 11 bins within the GCS campus, we are collecting food wastes and helping curb greenhouse emissions. How? Food that isn’t composted makes up a large portion of our landfills. When food rots, and is not decomposed into soil by worms or other organisms, it emits methane, a much more potent trapper of heat than CO2. Beyond helping gardens and farms, compost helps reduce global climate change agents.

Thank you to all of our parent composters, as well as our Early Childhood lunch community service kids, and our Green Team kids in Upper School.
