Stories on teaching composting to kids, please?
Hi to all! (And thanks, again, Spike!)
My 4 year old goes to a co-operative nursery school and I've got a background in education (reading but not early childhood, nevertheless..) Being an avid composter and seeing how much my son's gotten into gardening and composting these last years with me has got me thinking. I'm toying with the idea of starting a compost pile and related "lessons" at the school (or, rather, suggesting this). Parent input is welcomed there and the kids do have a small garden patch they started last year. It seems like a natural progression.
Have any of you done something like this? I'd love to hear stories, both good and bad.
