Composting/VermicompostingOrganic Waste
One of Hawken’s largest problems is organic wastegenerated from the White House Cafeteria.
 This includes all the waste from kitchen preparation (i.e. egg shells, fruitpeels, etc.) and food scraps from students. Hawken can compostgrains, fruit and vegetables that students of not eaten. With a littleeffort, the Ecology Club can help recycle these products back into theenvironment. This would require us to do a few things:During the Spring and Fall, a schedule will be maintained for studentsto help in the composting effort after or before school. It will notrequire much time, but will need consistent involvement from EcologyClub members.In the Winter, we will be collecting and storing organic waste to becomposted in the Spring, when decomposing will take a more rapideffect on the food.Teaming up with the Circle W Garden will allow us to provide rich,fertile soil for them to use in growing vegetables and fruits.
