As a part of their semester community service project, the Living Learning Community (LLC) has created a compost bin for the Berry Elementary garden.
Students in the LLC must live together, take two selected classes together, and complete a community service project as a part of living on the designated LLC hall. They were inspired to build the compost bin after their two shared classes, “Environment, Society and Culture” and “Biology of Useful Plants.”
Compost bins help to speed up decomposition of different materials. It is an eco-friendly way to dispose of biodegradable waste and is often used for fertilizer.
The students spend two weeks building the bin, first starting with leveling the ground, then building the cinderblock wall. The final project is twelve feet long, 4 feet wide and has 3 separate compartments.
The LLC students also presented on their work at the student symposium last Tuesday, giving information both about the LLC and about composting and food sustainability.
