Compost your Class
"I loved being the soggy lettuce and cheese sandwich - it was so cool to turn into compost and grow a carrot"
- Sophie, aged 7

Compost your class is the perfect fringe event for school groups! An interactive whole body experience of nutrient cycling, where each participant becomes part of the compost action, transforming food scraps into carrots. Suitable for school aged children aged 5-10 years. This one hour immersive experience has been performed with over 200 children and one mixed group of adults and children (with hilarious results!)

UPDATE 17/03/2020

Compost your class has been postponed until further notice. Please stay tuned for updates and get in touch with any enquiries
