Synopsis: Plants get their food from the soil while animals get theirs from plants and other animals. When plants and animals die they decompose in the soil with the help of the minibeasts down there. Everything goes round and round and round, and that’s the Cycle of Life!
With humour and lively songs and dances, this mini-musical appeals to children's fascination with gardens and living things. It shows the importance of food chains and recycling organic things.

Song Sample: From DIRTY ROTTEN DECOMPOSERS
We're the dirty rotten decomposers,
The natural waste disposers,
We get down to it, mulch it up and chew it
It's a dirty rotten job but then someone's got to do it...
