Over the past few weeks, Mrs. Chapnick has been visiting the Grade 1&2 classes to make Compost Soup! We chopped potatoes, celery, carrots, sweet potatoes, and even onions! All of the peels that would normally go into the compost pail, went into a cheese cloth and were used to flavor the soup. The peels have many nutrients and vitamins in them! The smell of the delicious soup filled the halls and was enjoyed by many. It truly was tasty and delicious!!!!
