Ursinus College April Update

03 Apr 2014 11:56 AM | Ron Wood

We have input our baseline data and are compiling the optional landfilled information so as to have that included in our baseline data for 2013.  We opted to include this as we would like to see the year to year results of shifting our waste stream to mostly compostable items. We anticipate having the landfill data by the end of this week and submitting shortly thereafter.

In partnership with our Office of Sustainability and our Campus Organic Garden we anticipate getting our first crop of hot house lettuces and greens by the end of this month.  We have commited to utilizing as much product as they can produce.  The garden was recently expanded by adding several acres of growing space. We anticipate production to yield usable products April through October.
