Close the Loop St. Albans

SACS students posing with the "Bucket of Worms"

The Close the Loop St. Albans celebration took place at BFA on Friday night with an invitation to the community to enjoy some Ben & Jerry's ice cream and to see how far the project has come since it's inception at BFA in 2010. Participating schools, including SACS, were recognized for their hard work and dedication to the project. Since March of 2011 our school has diverted 30,594 pounds (15.3 tons) of food scraps from the landfill to composting! Team USA was asked by The Highfields Center for Composting to make a video for the presentation. Some Team USA students followed the food waste from our school compost buckets to Hudak Farm to see just how the whole process works. You can see the video below or by going to:
