Fourth grade learners in the Gardening Club at Mineola’s Jackson Avenue School are spearheading the school’s composting initiative and helping turn organic waste into rich soil for planting.

The students are collecting food scraps in barrels around the school and transferring it to outdoor composting bins that were designed and built by students in the high school Fab Lab. Members of the Gardening Club are tending to their compost daily in preparation for planting season.

The compost they are creating will be used nourish flowers and vegetables planted by students in the new Learning Garden, an interactive outdoor learning space that is a collaborative effort of the school’s art and STEM departments.
