Waste Reduction

The ALL compost program was a huge success at Birch Lane in 2012-2013.  It led to increased recycling and a 50% reduction in solid waste.

Farm Fresh Lunches

Students enjoy a daily salad bar and the outdoors eating area is next to the arboretum garden.  On selected days, students may participate in craft and garden activities after they finish lunch.
