Eco Warriors- Community Meeting 20.4.22
On the 20th April, Mrs Bowen and Year 2 members of the Malvern Way Eco Warriors attended a joint meeting held at Yorke Mead. Here we met with all the local Croxley Green schools to discuss the upcoming Earth Day. At this meeting we spoke about food waste and how as individuals, a community and schools we could reduce food waste. Each school then made a pledge to themselves and the community of how their school would reduce food waste. At Malvern Way we agreed to consistently use our recycling bins for food waste either giving it to our school chickens or in our compost heaps. It was great to see the Year 2 members confidently discuss and talk about this matter.
The School Council members are now taking this further and creating a wormery to put some of the food waste in and create our own fertiliser for our growing beds and polytunnel.
The Eco Warriors also contributed to an Earth Day Video- please see below.
Each member of the school was given an Earth Day Calendar. Here children are encouraged to take part in a range of other challenges from the calendar – from taking soft plastic to the Co-op, to putting up a bird feeder and having a plant-based food day each week. Lets see how many challenges can be completed in 30 days!
