Waste Not, Want Not: Food Week with Urban Green Lab

Urban Green Lab was thrilled to celebrate Food Week 2015 with the bright 5th graders of J.T. Moore Middle School. We worked through a presentation on waste and brainstormed ways to resolve this prevalent costly attitude. The students sorted themselves into the proper disposal site in our "Garbology 101" game and learned about recycling options in Nashville. These kids were eager to work through sustainable waste management ideas, we rewarded them with a tasty ride on our bike blender. We even got to incorporate J. T. Moore's homegrown tomatoes and herbs into the salsa we made together!
Thanks to MNPS and J.T. Moore for inviting us to teach our sustainability education and all the volunteers who came to take part in this important work. We continue to learn so much from the students we visit!
