Earth Day 2011

In celebration of Earth Day, the LC community will have a special lunch in the cafeteria Friday and student organizations will be offering eco-friendly crafts and information in the East Room.

The Green Thumbs Club will be selling lettuce in pots and letting students know about their renovation of the greenhouse and their summer garden.

The Alliance For Energy Awareness (AFEA) will give students a chance to make their own body scrub and paint a reusable shopping bag.

AFEA will also be promoting recycling as a reminder of the importance of cutting down our waste stream.

The Earth Day menu includes some items sourced as locally as possible, including asparagas from Emporia, Va., chicken from Bridgewater, Va., beef from Lexington, Va., chips from Mt. Jackson, Va., and ice cream from Burnt Chimney, Va.
