Kids learn how to make compost

Vegetable peelings

You might think that kitchen left-overs are good for nothing but the bin but kids in London are learning how to turn them into compost.

Compost is a way of making old fruit and veg into soil which helps plants grow really healthy.

These children learnt how to compost - on the roof of a restaurant!

Green campaigners say turning fruit and veg peelings into compost is much better for the environment.
