Building a New School Compost System


November 3, 2017

I am a teacher at a school of about 200 students that includes a school garden and a small orchard. We would like to get a more functional compost system up and running. What compost method would you recommend that we use? Do you have anyone who would be able to visit our school look at our site to make recommendations? Thanks.


Answer by JZ: I will do my best to answer your question.  Other colleagues may also respond.

You have a fine idea to have a composting setup at your school.  There are many choices open to you.

If you would let us know the name and address of your school, then a site visit might be arranged.

Attached is a site evaluation tool which I use for schools. It may be helpful for you to review, then get back to me.

You, your staff and students are always welcome to attend any of our free composting classes, as often as you like

Be talking to you.   All the best.
