You can make a difference...
Sometimes we need to hear it from a colleague or friend why Recycling is Important. Here's why Darla's recycles and why she thinks it is important:
Why I Recycle.
"I am one person who has been temporarily placed on this beautiful amazing planet. I want my imprint on this earth to be the children I leave behind and not the amount of trash I put in a landfill or the number of trees I kill. I recycle not only to save the beauty and natural resources of our land for my children, but so my children learn to recycle to save these resources for their children. You can teach your children all the necessary skills to succeed in life but if they do not have clean water to drink and fresh air to breath…what is the use? I recycle so that when I leave this Earth, I know I did my part to ensure that my great grand."

Your daily actions speak louder than words.
As the end of the Fall 2014 term approaches, let's take a look back and a glance forward.
The Campus Community Garden has been cleared now with the last of the potatoes dug up this week thanks to Joshua Monroe helping me. I then delivered 30 lbs. of red and Yukon gold potatoes to the Good Neighbor Food Pantry in Dayton.
The space that has been the Garden for the last three summers will be converted to a Pollinator Garden next spring and help to educate the campus community about pollinators, their role in nature and in our food supply and why we should protect them from chemical poisons and habitat loss.
Other recent events included the Montgomery County Food Summit on November 5th. Over 200 people from around the Miami Valley attended this conference to learn about Local Organic Food Production and to discuss how the Dayton area can further develop a Food Hub to increase the amount of food products grown and consumed right in our area.
Check out the photo shoot.
And as we move into Spring Term 2015, we need to get geared up for Recyclemania and the Campus Conservation Nationals coming up in January.
Have a Safe and Happy Break!
