On November 7th, we had a very informative visit from Elaine from Biolan. Elaine trained our kitchen staff how to use the compost bin, and what foods should be put into the bin, and what should not. After about two months, the left over food will turn into a natural fertilizer and we will be able to use it on the plants that the students planted in our garden.
The students also participated in a training by Elaine from Biolan. Elaine taught us how to plant the seedlings of lettuce and violets, then the students had the opportunity to dig a hole, put the seedling inside, then cover it up with dirt. The students really enjoyed planting, and are very interested in watching them grow everyday.
