Composting Waste to Grow Good Soil
Salt Spring Island, British Columbia
As part “garden school” at Salt Spring Elementary, all eight K-5 classes will help fix up the three-bin compost system in their school garden, layer a hot compost cake with paper towels, food waste and more, monitor, water and mix it, and then sieve and apply good growing soil to their veggie beds.
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots
Do great things in your community.
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
