The Next Step Environmental Action Team (NEAT) and friends spent a fantastic day at the University of Alberta last week to learn about the U of A's efforts to create a sustainable campus and to increase our school's environmental action. As part of the the U of A's Sustainable Awareness Week, our students took a sustainability tour of the campus in the morning, and learned how to compost from the City of Edmonton's Master Composter, Mark Allen-Stumpf. At the end of the day, Next Step school was the proud owner of two composting units, and received kudos from the University of Alberta Ambassadors for our sustainability efforts, including a community kitchen, community garden and our ongoing (and growing!) environmental group at the school.
