Grover Heights 4th and 6th grade students are currently using a raised garden bed as a worm bin to compost the salad bar leftovers on a daily basis. They have been vermicomposting for one year, and their worm bin is located fairly close to the lunch area. At Grover Heights, students will collect the waste, dig the hole to bury the food waste, and cover it back up. Teachers demonstrated the process for the students before the students took over. The finished compost goes into the garden beds. Mr. Griffin recommends to start by speaking with the custodians — he feels that they must be involved for the longevity of the program.
