Host Nan Franzblau and co-host Cliff School Librarian Mary Giardina are joined by Mrs. Quattrocchi’s 5th grade students.  The students discuss the five large murals they created for the Cliff School cafeteria that inspire others to compost their food waste and educate them about the process.  Students talk about how composting happens and its benefits and impacts on the environment.  They also describe their murals in detail, even down to some of the worm-characters’ names!  Finally, they talk about their artistic processes and how creating these murals as well as the practice of composting itself will help shape their lives in the future.
