Partnership between Gwinnett schools and Food Well Alliance teaching students how to turn food waste into gardening compost

Kermit The Frog was right, in a sense. It really isn’t easy to be green, or rather it’s not easy to go green.

It requires hard work. It takes the mixing of different types of materials. You have to use pitchforks to dig into, lift and turn over decomposing materials. There are “greens,” which is organic material such as vegetables and fruits as well as “browns” such as wood chips, pine straw, leaves, plain white paper that does not have colored ink on it and shredded cardboard.
