Tamassee-Salem ES Green Team students learned about composting from Christina Passafaro from Oconee County Solid Waste and Recycling. She and Maureen Whitman brought bins to use for composting. Grades 3-5 are currently composting food waste every day at lunch. 5th grade students are responsible for dumping the compost in the outside bin. The Green Team created slide shows and graphics to broadcast to the rest of the students and lunchroom staff about composting. They also taught other classmates what can and cannot be composted. The goal is to increase composting efforts school-wide next year, and they will be using the compost in their pollinator garden.
