Bokashi kids: Nailsworth Primary in Australia
FROM a bucket of waste to greener gardens – Nailsworth Primary School students are rushing to make a difference to the environment.
Year 6 students at the school each week empty buckets of food scraps from the classrooms and transform it into compost.
Using a Bokashi system, the compost is turned into a sludge-like fertiliser, which is used on the school’s vegie patch and gardens.
Year 6 student Ciandra says the composting process takes up to four weeks.
“It’s good for the environment,” she says. Classmate Peter adds: “And it makes everything greener.”
