Students Participate In Compost Pilot Program

Composting is a natural process of decomposition and recycling of organic material into a rich soil additive known as compost. Other states are actively doing this with their food waste and our Clay County High School FFA students are leading the way for Tennessee by participating in a compost pilot program.

Clay County High School FFA is pleased to announce that they are one of the six schools in Tennessee that are participating in a compost pilot program. Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation representative Kelsey Davis visited local students and taught them how to properly compost materials. The high school also received two new composting bins that they will incorporate into their already successful agriculture program.
