Hilton Head Island International Baccalaureate Elementary first-graders — from left, Siris Liptak, Sadie Wolfe, Connor Bell and Luke Sodermann — dig in the compost garden during Wednesday's schoolwide Conservation Celebration. Guidance counselor Francis Ferrene started the garden, and several fifth-graders made compost out of lunchroom table scraps. The goal of the program is to teach students and the community to be eco-friendly.

Students learn about gardening at the school garden and help feed the soil by adding lunch scraps to the compost pile.
