After meeting in Washington DC for the President’s Environmental Youth Award one of Grades of Green’s newest schools, Accelere led by a truly inspiring science teacher, Mr. Graham, is taking our Worm Bin Activity to a whole new level! Based in Omaha, Nebraska, Multiple Pathways’ Accelere Program is fighting hunger by combining vermicomposting and aquaponics into one sustainable cycle. Accelere’s Grades of Green Team put together the school’s very first worm bin to help curb food waste that would otherwise go to a landfill. As the compost ecosystem starts to thrive, excess worms will be used to feed the growing school of tilapia housed within their aquaponics system. The students at Accelere are truly marching to the beat of their own drum and Grades of Green couldn’t be more proud at how they’ve taken the website activities and made it their own!
