06.13.2011 The Future of Saf Continues Wednesday

This coming Wednesday, the Board of Trustees will vote on the continuation of the SAF (student activity fee). The SAF is paid by every student at the beginning of each semester but students can the fee waived.

The SAF is used to fund the bus pass, club activities and other student related events. The SAF has been used to fund our garden projects, documentary screenings, In Conversation with Julia Butterfly Hill and Daryl Hannah, Think Before You Buy, and Sustainable Living Week.

Without the SAF, it will be very hard to get any (if at all) funding for events and student actives.

Please come to the Board of Trustees meeting this Wednesday and make you voice heard.

Garden Fridays 6/10/2011

This last Friday in the organic vegetable garden, we did the usual weeding and deep watering. Brenda, had the suggestion to space out the corn for optimum growing. We also checked out how the radishes and carrots are growing.

Radishes and Carrots

Brenda showed how to dig up the organic corn and transplant it in another spot.

Transplanting Corn

Students and club members came up with a plan which corn plants had to be moved.

Then, we got our hands dirty and quickly moved the corn.
