Child First After School Program Begins Composting!
The Child First After School program is setting quite an example in the Brooklyn Curtis Bay neighborhood. In a program designed by the Filbert Street Garden, the After School program is now composting all of their food waste from dinner!!!!!!!!
Not to be outdone, the Curtis Bay Elementary/Middle Green Team has just started a school-wide recycling program.
For those who couldn't make it out to the garden day on Saturday, it was a wonderful time. The kiddos painted our shed and gate, and put the last load of soil on our green roof. Community members tilled their plots, planted a flower bed, started work on the outdoor education area and did a general clean up.
We finished the day with s'mores over a small campfire in our fire pit. Don't worry, there will be another garden day in april, so be sure to come out!
