  • Hillcrest Talks Composting with Mr. Brownell

    Recently classes at Hillcrest Elementary had the opportunity to learn about composting with class parent, Mr. Brownell. Mr. B spoke with students about how to compost and about what is best to use to create a “hearty” compost. In addition to learning about composting materials, each class also learned about the different parts of a worm and children had the chance to study worms up close.
