Blueberry Creek Community School (BCCS) celebrated earth day with a workshop on composting. With the help of mayor Lawrence Chernoff and SD 20 trustee Jen Carter, the BCCS children constructed the inaugural BCCS community compost pile. The children and parents present learned about composting as an ecologically sustainable method of recycling organics. The three bin hot composting system is part of the expansion of the green infrastructure at BCCS which includes the Butterflies and Berries Ecological tour and the rainwater collection system. This green  infrastructure provides the platform for experiential learning opportunities for children and community alike, and reflects the environmentally responsible focus of the centre.
