At the beginning of this year we elected our eco-committee in nursery. The children on the committee have joined in with the whole school in creating an action plan, to help us work on reaching our targets. We created both an eco-school committee and a litter committee as part of this. We've met with Mr Taylor to see if we could get a budget to help get started, which he agreed. As a result, the nursery children have been very pro-active in the school grounds and the wider community in litter picking and raising awareness of litter in our local environment.
As part of our beach kindergarten on Fridays we have taken the litter pickers to Cramond foreshore to collect litter and discuss the impact of litter on our environment. We have also been busy collecting recycled boxes to plant flowers and vegetables in so we can provide our own snacks, planting a butterfly garden and other herbs and flowers to attract wildlife and help provide food for them in the nursery garden. We are using our water butt to collect rain water that can be used for watering our plants and water play and all of our food waste is going in to our composter and we are using this to help fertilise our vegetable allotment.
