  One good way to learn about sustainability is by practicing it. That’s what students at a Sebastopol campus are doing, through a hands-on composting project that is ten years old and going strong.

The composting project is also supported by grants from the Sebastopol Rotary Club, and gift certificates from Mary’s Pizza shack. It will continue, on a scaled-back basis, during summer school.
