Clinkingbeard’s innovative teaching idea, “Circle of Life Composting,” focuses on a student-initiated, student-led, school-wide composing effort. Middle school students will be provided with the tools and materials to build a fifteen-foot long, three sectioned, aerated static pile composter. The composter, which will have a student designed automatic watering system, will be used to grow a food garden that will supply fresh fruits and vegetables for the school kitchen. The leftover meal scraps will then be composted in order to continue the cycle.
