SMC in Bloom

The “CEUS” has changed its branding to the Sustainability Center. There is a new revised webpage as well. Please bookmark this link for all of your reference needs:  

What's Growing in the Garden

The Organic Learning Garden is in full bloom and growing lots of goodies for the Bodega! Last week we harvested carrots, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, chard, parsley, and fresh thyme.

The Student Life / AS Office added a new compost bin!
Your office could be next.
Big shout out to Dr. Isaac Rodrigues Lupercio and his team for being the first department to sign up for a green bin to collect compost. This bin is serviced twice a week by the SMC Recycle Team, and instead of going to landfill, the food waste and other organic materials are sent to American Organics to be processed into nutrient rich soil that can be used on farms. 
Your department can also have a green bin for compost! Email to sign up.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! 

Celebrate with one of these amazing plant based recipes.
