The Campus Community Garden CG Photo 2015 06 17 Garden News Are you snacking in the garden or elsewhere on campus? We would love for your food waste to go into our Green Cone Composter! This green cone composter is specifically for food waste and is located in the native flower bed in the center of the garden. It will break down your food scraps including meat/bones, cooked food, and dairy. (Please don’t add grass or plant clippings!) A more comprehensive list of accepted items is posted on the cone and a fact sheet about how it works is posted on the bulletin board. Weekly work parties Tuesdays 3:30-5:30pm Thursdays 5:30-7:30pm Join us this week to transplant hops and bush beans, flip compost, weed the squash bed, and collect lupine seeds.
