Crews with similar priorities join forces
Jess Fadem, Energy Services’ plumbing specialist, developed a plan to drastically reduce water usage in a majority of buildings across the Warren Wilson College campus.
The Thanksgiving harvest display has included animals from the farm for 77 years, a tradition which began with Bernhard Laursen, the college’s first farm manager in1933, the College Pastor Steve Runholt said in his sermon.
“Out of out of our 40 pigs, we had eight get sick or die,” said Chandler. “We had a vet come in and try to give them antibiotics, but that did not work. Nothing seemed to be working.”
This fall, the Farm Crew set out to restore the landscape surrounding a stream by Dam Pasture.
Warren Wilson’s Farm Manager Chase Hubbard defeated incumbent Jeff Turner on Tuesdays’ election by 143 votes, earning a spot on Buncombe County’s Soil and Water Conservation Board.
“Preserving different elements of campus life is something I think should be happening more often, and with greater care,” said Dan Seeger, director of student activities.
That’s about to change, though. Xenia Pantos, one of only two crew members who held over from last year’s crew, was looking through some old Bike Shop records when she made a discovery: a system that streamlined the pickup and drop-off of bicycles.
The farm correspondent retells the summer action.
“a business, government agency, school, organization or large-scale facility that designed and implemented a composting or organics-recycling program that has been in operation for one year.”
As part of an ELC Campus Greening Seed Grant, 5 minute hourglass timers are set to become a fixture in all bathrooms to help students become more conscious of their water use.
