Y’all better crunch those leaves at Toluca Lake!
We LOVE fall.
We are so thankful for those falling leaves that add lovely carbon material to our compost bin. Some of the training rangers and I built a pallet compost at TLES and it have been beautiful! The parent center has been adding coffee grounds and I have been bringing in food scraps weekly. Students have been turning, crunching, and adding to our pile and the heat.is.coming!!!
As we end our cycle we discuss what we learned and how we can change some of our eating habits. Students decided to cut out one carb or meat product a week and add in a veggie or fruit-not a bad start!
On our garden we have peas, beans, marigolds, chard, and loads of herbs. Our olive tree has its first fruits as well!
