Greetings garden enthusiasts!
Welcome back to this blog and to the bright new year of 2015. Here’s hoping spring springs itself upon us sooner rather than later, and that silly little woodchuck family decides to nest on the banks of another sustainable operation! One can only wish, though. 🙂
SLUG is still extremely active in the wintertime. We compost every day, Mon-Fri. M/W/F we collect food waste from Andrew Commons at Lawrence University and T/T we collect food waste, brew mash, and coffee grounds from Aspen Coffee, Copper Rock Coffee, Stone Cellar Brewery, and the newly opened restaurant Rye! We’re stacking this compost alongside our 90ft hoophouse to keep it nice and warm. (Ready for sprouts and starts at the beginning of our season!)
We would like to publically thank and applaud the many beautiful and hard-working volunteers that showed up in SLUG to help us on Monday for LU’s MLK Day of Service. There was about 50 of you- and we accomplished SO many things in the garden that would’ve taken forever without all of the support. The day was perfect, too- movie snow fell, there were no woodchucks in sight, and I swore Professor Bjornerud planted the best sprouts we have ever seen. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
SLUG meets every week. Wednesday, 7PM, Youngchild 218. Come down and plan the upcoming #HOMEGROWN Conference 2015 and get updates about getting dirty!
