What is your wish for this project?

The Daggett Montessori School Green Team's mission is to ensure our school is a green, sustainable school and to teach students and the community about sustainable practices. By establishing a campus composting program, we hope to educate the entire school, including parents and the community, on the science behind and benefits of composting.

How are you going to do it?

The DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.
