We recieved a grant from the Yarra Energy Foundation which we have used to implement a new composting system at Carlton North Primary School.
Composting Workshop at CNPS
On Tuesday 6th August each unit had a session with Morgan from 3000 Acres to teach us all about composting. We learned some very useful information about what we can and can’t compost, reducing our contribution to landfill and the benefits of nutrient rich soil. We are extremely excited to be implementing our new composting system at CNPS in the coming weeks. There will be individual composting bins in each classroom to collect our food scraps, which will then be turned into nutrient rich soil for our gardens.
We are aiming to significantly reduce the amount of waste we produce at CNPS, this new system will be a huge step in the right direction! Please remember to try and pack ‘nude food’ lunches as often as possible to help us with our waste reduction. A reminder that Sticky Beaks (reusable lunch bags for lunch orders) are available to purchase at the office for $10. The money raised from the purchasing of Sticky Beaks helps us continue with our mission towards creating a sustainable and waste free school!
A huge thank you to Morgan from 3000 Acres and Peter Mercouriou from Yarra Energy Foundation for the fantastic composting workshops. Another thank you to our very own Trish Harrington for helping organise this event.
