Mrs Salmon has brought a wonderful new compost bin into our kitchen garden for the start of the school year. Here our “waste warriors” will make daily deposits of all our food scraps. To keep the compost healthy and breaking down at a good pace, we need to ensure that it remains “aerobic”. This means lots of air and not too much moisture. If it becomes anaerobic (less oxygen, more moisture) it will be smelly and break down very slowly. So, along with each bucket of food scraps, the waste warriors will add a bucket of dry material, such as leaves, lawn clippings, shredded paper, sawdust or torn newspaper. Just to be sure to stop the compost from becoming smelly, the waste warriors will add a few handfuls of hydrated lime each week.
Hooray!! Our garden shed is up! Now we have a place to store our tools and all the other materials we need for working in our garden. Thanks Michael, and helper, Katrina.
Our school Garden Club is up and running. We plan to meet at lunch time on Tuesdays (with Mr Bleakley) and on Fridays (with Katrina).
