    Composting with leaves:  Composting Ppt with video links 
    (TED talk with Dr. Mike McGrath which I have shown. Mike hosts the nationally syndicated public radio show "You Bet Your Garden", which airs every Saturday at 11am on WHYY-FM (90.9) in Philadelphia. "You Bet Your Garden" is also the name of Mike's column in the quarterly gardening publication Greenprints, appearing in every issue since 1998. Mike was editor-in-chief of Organic Gardening magazine from February 1991 through December 1997.)
    Students take notes while viewing the three video links, then gather into groups and write a Composting Procedures document to guide the class in the proper method of composting. Include nutrients and their sources.
