Earth Day is this week so we are celebrating all week long here at the Science Center. Today we are kicking off with a Science Sunday all about composting. What do you think, does organic matter (food scraps) break down the same way in a landfill as they do in a compost? The answer may surprise you. Learn more about that and ways you can experiment with composting at home this Earth Day.
