Consul General Koenig celebrated Earth Day 2017 with a series of activities at Bermuda’s GLOBE school, Paget Primary, on April 13. After the screening of Ocean Warriors: Episode 1, students took CG Koenig on a tour of the school’s compost gardens where they compile waste, building up soil for the garden plots on school grounds. Students are growing a variety of vegetables including lettuce, tomatoes and carrots. Lots of plants survived the winter months, including a butterfly farm with an impressive display of milkweed. Students also participated in a cloud measuring exercise where they collected data for the GLOBE database.
