In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
If the congregation has a compost bin, have the children visit it. Ask the adults who maintain the compost bin to tell the children how and why the bin was started, how it is "fed" (e.g., coffee grounds from social hour, fruit peels from snacks in religious education, or compostable waste from congregational meals). If the children have brought compost material from home, invite them to place it in the bin. Show how to care for the material (e.g., turning the pile). If possible, show the fully composted material that can be used in a garden and allow children to hold some in their hands.
