Following the fourth week, the module on “composting” was facilitated to the students. The facilitators demonstrated composting with the balanced mixture of dry and wet waste. Relating to the fact that organic waste constitutes of 66% of the household waste, students were encouraged to compost at their homes.
Students were introduced to two types of composting; anaerobic and aerobic composting with demonstration of the latter in regards to its relevance and convenience. Along with composting, students were informed about prospects of roof top gardening and how it helps sustain cities with less agricultural spaces.
With increasing access to chemical fertilizers, non-organic vegetables and their effect on our health; composting is the one stop solution to reduce landfill waste; make, grow and sell organic compost and vegetables and moreover a holistic approach towards reducing environment oriented problems. Introducing composting and its benefits to students today shall produce a generation of youths habituated towards making “best of waste”.
