Elementary students learned how to lessen their ecological footprint

CEAP Elementary students at Qualicum Commons had the opportunity to learn another way to lessen their ecological footprint and contribute to a healthier environment.  Roots bags are made from recycled natural fibres mixed with recycled plastic bottles otherwise destined for landfills. On June 7, each student was given a root bag of their own and then filled them with organic soil. They were then given the option to choose from variety of starter plants including kale, tomatoes, squash, lettuce and beans to plant them in their root bags. The students then watered their plants with organic compost water.
