Please submit any question you may have pertaining to Argyle’s Outdoor Educational Classroom, and we will try to answer it.
What kind of composting systems are in use in the classroom right now?
There are 3 composting systems that are in our classrom right now. They include vermicomposting, ecosystem composting and electric composting systems.
What is vermicomposting?
Vermicomposting is composting using worms.
How much power can the wind turbine generate? How much power can the solar panel generate? How much power is generated by both these power sources combined?
Argyle’s wind turbine/solar panel is a 300 watt system and is used to power a low energy light system which grows plants.
At our school, our wind turbine makes a whistling noise while its running. Does yours?
All together how many different environmental items/objects does Argyle have?
How did you build your indoor ecosystem?
Why is Argyle so interested in an eco friendly environment, and using as little waste products as “you” can? (or to reuse “your” waste in a constructive way?)
How long did the wind turbine take to put up?
How did you start your composting?
How long did it take to build your indoor ecosystem?
My question is, what was the inspiration for your wind turbine and solar panel? How much did they cost and who started the project. Would you recommend a solar panel to other schools like Elmwood?
I really like your website. It is very informative, I also thought that the trip to argyle was ok. THANKS
How come you guys have the sculpture?.. does it represent anything?.
We started with vermi composting. We wanted to compost organic waste in our school.
We purchased our ecosystem from a supplier in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The sculpture is titled “4 + Seven”, and represents the four elements (air, water, earth, and fire) and the seven teachings of the aboriginal culture.
Yes, our wind turbine does make a whistling noise — especially on windy days.
