Members of the school’s Eco Council spent lunchtime today preparing the ground for the compost bin they built before half term. The bin has been constructed out of pallets and the first job today was to remove the turf so that the bin can sit on exposed soil. We then hammered in two broom handles and wired them to the pallet to hold the structure in place. We need to hammer in the remaining stakes tomorrow and then create a hinged front panel. We can then start gathering up materials for the compost!
