SGES is awarded grant from the Captain Planet Foundation

Schools can help the environment and their community when they compost their food scraps. Our school is in the initial phases of developing a composting program. Our program will reduce our solid waste stream, recycle natural resources, educate our school community about the benefits of composting, and continue to develop a healthy garden for farm to school activities. With the funding provided from the Captain Planet Foundation along with the Sea Girt Board of Education, we will purchase a compost tumbler, vermicomposter, and WORX trivac and leaf pro collection system for our Grades 5-8 students to use within their Environmental Stewardship cycle course. Students will begin actively composting material discarded at lunch as well as the leaves around the property.
