Clothing Swap and Recycle Drive
Wednesday, April 18, 2012, 10:00-2:00 p.m.
The Environmental Center will be at the Student Union during the last Market Days collecting clothing, shoes and electronics that students, faculty and staff no longer want or need. We will a tent set up for anyone who would like to bring in their old clothes to swap or just donate (all remaining clothing will be donated). We will also be collecting old tennis shoes that will be sent to Nike, so they can be recycled into athletic tracks and courts (like the track in our new Wellness Center!). Lastly, we will be recycling electronic waste, so students can bring in old iPods, batteries, cell phones, etc. Students, faculty and staff can bring any of these items to Market Days on the 18th or our anytime to our office in bldg. 1, room 2200.

Slow Food First Coast Tour de Farm
Sunday April 22, 2012, 12-5
20 farms in 7 counties: A Once a Year Opportunity!
Twenty local farms are open to visitors for only one afternoon each year. Each farm has at least one special activity: a tour, a tasting, a chance to pick produce from the field, a workshop or demonstration. Many have local chefs or artisan partners who are offering free tastings or food for sale. Many are selling their produce or meat. Fill a car with your friends, bring a cooler, water, sunscreen, close-toed shoes, and your GPS and come meet our local farmers! See SlowFoodFirstCoast.com to download tour information or pick up a tour booklet at the Honors Program (1/1600). For more information, contact Dr. Leslie Kaplan, Honors Program.
