Balboa Middle School launches new composting program

With support from Ventura Unified School District and the Green Schools Program, Balboa Middle School is launching a new composting program using fruit and vegetable scraps collected from the cafeteria and from student lunches. Students from Mr. Roth’s Horticulture class will help manage the program and feed scraps to the worms located in the school garden.

Local elementary schools already divert over 150 tons of food waste from the landfill each year with the Green Schools’ Lunchtime Recycling Program.
