St. George's School Gardening Club (11-16) We compost all the kitchen leftovers (uncooked), the shredded paper from the office and the weeds we pull out of our garden. Our teacher gets the boys to do the heavy work turning over the pile, but they like it! I don't think anyone is alowed to wee on it! We used our rotted leaves from last year to make-over a flower bed next to our chapel. It worked really well, and it was full of worms so that improved the soil aswell! We do see a rat, and hte squirrels like to raid the pile, but that's OK because our teacher told us to respect nature and live alongside it. Even hte slugs go onto the compost heap!
