Composting 101


Environmental educators held a two-day workshop at Sir McChesney George Secondary School on solid waste management. On day one the students and teachers were introduced to the basics of composting, including the definitions, biology, chemistry, and physics of the process. Students carried out practical work on day two. The workshop was part of the Schools Outreach Program taught by environmentalists from Gilbert's Agricultural and Rural Development Center (GARDC) and the National Solid Waste Management Authority.

This term staff and students at Sir McChesney George have been managing their waste. Each room has two bins, one for biodegradable garbage such as food and paper, and the other for non-biodegradable foil and plastic. Bottles are kept separately.

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
