Volunteered at Katie’s garden today, and even though residents didn’t show because it was too early, my residents could learn to give back to the community by mulching and help planting flowers. A mulch is a layer of material applied to the surface of soil. Reasons for applying mulch include conservation of soil moisture, improving fertility and health of the soil, reducing weed growth and enhancing the visual appeal of the area. #Environmental
My residents should know the importance of Earth Day and why we should continue to protect the environment. My residents will realize how much the earth is truly important and how the human species needs food and water. So we need to protect the ecosystem that make survival of our species possible. #Environmental
As you think about where your things will be headed as you clean for the new year, consider that throwing things away may not be the best option. Check out the “Ditch the Dumpster” initiative on campus, consider donating gently used items, recycling, and composting the food that you don’t want to take home.
Hey friends, today we got the chance to watch the Lorax and we learned some tips about how to be better to our environment.
Rumor has it that there was a bit of bunny related mischief afoot last night. There are 600 eggs littered around Southwest Hall. Many of them are filled with candy while some of them have some facts about recycling. Be on the lookout for a very special egg that is your key to win a prize basket behind our front desk! If you love searching for eggs and playing games, you can join me at Brockert Hall at 5:00pm tonight to participate in their annual Egg Fest.
Thank you to all of you who came to Insect Thanksgiving with me. We got to try many different dishes made with Insects. Eating insects is a great way to reduce our carbon footprint by eating lower on the food chain.
