sustainable food

2.)  Food Chains
TUESDAY, December 1st  12:30
Hillwood Cinema
FOOD CHAINS, a new documentary, exposes the human cost in our food supply and the
complicity of large buyers of produce like fast-food chains and supermarkets.
It follows an intrepid group of Florida tomato pickers in their battle for a more humane
and transparent food chain. Their story is one of hope and triumph of morality over
corporate greed.

Dec 1 - Food Chains Film (Tuesday)

Nov/Dec - Yoga event?  Need update from Melissa.  Scott Cairns will reach out to Melissa. Perhaps he can assist with this project.

Recycling - slow reboot of the campus recycling program.
Laura and Tiffany worked recycling last year and will return this year and help Justin, who is already working for recycling team under Michael Berthel in Campus Life.

Pay-scale for recycling (all all) work study positions has been rolled back to $8.75. for all workers.  Clear supervisory work might be a rationale for higher pay.

Bessie and Marina would like to also support campus sustainability -  but we are looking for funding; we had funding for these positions last year but that funding isn't in place this year.  Sarah and Bessie will meet Thursday with the Dean of Student Life to discuss.

* Green Office Newsletter started last year is funding dependent.
* Website Update

Student Service Learning - Freshman Class
Students are working on expanding recycling bins for the campus.

Last year we did a successful rain garden project; work is needed on  that garden this fall
