We are thrilled to share that Bridge School received a grant from the Addison County Solid Waste Management District to start a composting program! Sarah Lundquist (pictured below), Solid Waste Program Assistant, was a guest teacher in Explorations this fall. Sarah taught a full week unit about waste awareness and management. After this inspiring class, Bridge teachers and kids decided that Bridge should be more intentional about our waste management program.
The grant will fund the building of a three-bin composting system, as well as a waste sorting system for the lunchroom. Students will help with the management of the compost, and it will also be used in classes as a catalyst for discussion and learning opportunities surrounding waste management, compost and soil cycles.
Thanks to Jen and Dave for your leadership in writing the grant and getting this program going!
