We're taking a break from our weekly gardening meetings this week. Thanks to the committee members who helped out last Wednesday with the roses! We'll be continuing that project next week. 

Feel free to come out to the Campus Environmental Center general meeting tomorrow:  
when: Wednesday, 10/13/10, 7-9 PM
where: WAG 214

Community garden update:
The soil test came through, the results are kind of needlessly complicated. The surface (top 2 feet) is good, but underneath, they found contamination in the groundwater. That has no impact on our ability to plant crops, but because of this finding, UT is obligated to perform further tests, and maybe take action to improve the groundwater. SO... we may or may not have to move sites. There is the possibility that the construction of the community garden may shift to the spring semester. This isn't an official decision quite yet, but we'll let you know what the plan is as soon as it's verified. Those of you who reserved/paid for plots will be able to keep your spots for the spring, and get your money returned in the meantime. Sorry for the wait, but establishing this garden is not so far down the road!

Have a great week!
