Bokashi kids: Nailsworth Primary in Australia

The kids at Nailsworth Primary outside Adelaide in South Australia have got it sorted. Their local paper reports on their projects, a different recyckling and gardening theme for each year.

FROM a bucket of waste to greener gardens – Nailsworth Primary School students are rushing to make a difference to the environment.

Year 6 students at the school each week empty buckets of food scraps from the classrooms and transform it into compost.

Using a Bokashi system, the compost is turned into a sludge-like fertiliser, which is used on the school’s vegie patch and gardens.

Year 6 student Ciandra says the composting process takes up to four weeks.

“It’s good for the environment,” she says. Classmate Peter adds: “And it makes everything greener.”
