Metro teaches Gaffney Lane students about composting
Third-graders at Gaffney Lane Elementary School in Oregon City had the opportunity to learn about using worm bins to reduce the amount of food waste that goes into the landfill. Metro's school outreach specialist Dr. Jamie Rapasky explained that the technique could be used in homes and apartments.
"This was a very hands-on activity, and the kids were interested to get a close-up look at the worms," said Principal Cyndi Borgmeier.
