On November, 3 2016, we went to the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. The purpose of this visit was to learn about composting. Long ago, there used to be an elevated highway that ran through Boston. This had a huge impact on the surroundings because there was a lot of damage that was done to that area. The environment was not that good and it was a really busy place. After many years, the highway was removed and the land underneath the highway was restored into a park. The job of the Rose Kennedy Greenway is to maintain that park and many parks around that area. The organization in charge of maintaining the Rose Kennedy Greenway does not use any chemicals; therefore they rely entirely on composting to give enough nutrients to all the plants in the park. They have organic compost and a vermiculture. It is important for them to use organic materials because there are babies and pets in the park so using chemicals would not be a safe idea. We were able to learn about some basics about composting. For instance, we learned that we should not put any meat or citrus in our compost but instead, we should prioritize vegetables and fruits. We did an activity, prior to visiting the Greenway that showed us how many days or years materials take to decompose. We found out that glass and styrofoam takes the longest to decompose. With this knowledge, it would help us know what and what not to put in our own compost. By learning about composting at the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, we can apply that knowledge to further enhance our compost so that we do not make any mistakes.
