Rosebank Primary Gets Composting
RoWAN recently visited Rosebank Primary in Nairn to introduce the nursery, P1 and P2 children (163 altogether) to composting. Zero Waste Volunteers Janet and Lois, and Volunteer Co-ordinator Caroline, ran classroom sessions talking about what can and cannot be composted and the benefits of composting. The worms were a big hit with the children.
The school has a thriving garden, but at the moment the compost bins are only used for garden waste. Now the younger children will be collecting uncooked fruit and vegetable waste from snacks and lunchtime and adding these to the compost bins. The plan is to extend collections to the whole school after the summer.
RoWAN has several volunteers in Nairn now, but is still looking to recruit more, so that we can help even more people to reduce their waste.
