CGE Green Team is wrapping up their STEM-based school site investigation from Project Learning Tree on waste reduction and recycling. The team's efforts and findings have contributed to Carlos Gilbert officially joining Santa Fe Public School's lunchroom composting program! This program will be run in partnership with our local, non-profit composting facility, Reunity Resources

Many thanks to Lisa Randal from SFPS's Sustainability Program and Juliana Ciano of Reunity Resources for making this happen at our school. 

Lisa and Juliana will be in the lunchroom on Launch Day, February 28th, to help the students and staff with the new process of clearing compostable items from their trays into designated bins. The food scraps will be processed at Reunity Resources' facility into amazing, healthy dirt that students will then use to prepare spring planting beds in the school garden. Full circle!
