Composting Program

Argyle Alternative High School students and staff compost material from the cafeteria and classrooms.  

 

WHAT IS COMPOSTING? 

 "Composting is a natural process by which organic material decomposes to form a rich natural fertilizer.  Composting doesn't require a lot of technical know-how, in fact it happens naturally.  With some understanding of composting and minimal effort, you can easily create a pleasing and productive system that's right for you."  (Reference:  BACKYARD COMPOSTING IT'S EASY!: GREEN ACTION CENTRE)
