I am terribly sorry that I have been such a slacker this week! However,
last week we had a great meeting and between then and now, there was,
in fact, a sustainability committee meeting, organized by Bill
Nelligan, which some knew about and some didn't (again- sorry)
discussing the future of sustainability at Wesleyan. In any case, there
promises to be another one soon. And until then, you can all come to
the EON meeting on Monday at 9pm in the Woodhead Lounge in the Science
center, as ever, and you can read the very, very overdue minutes from
last meeting! Yay, EON!

Some composting and farming folks met with Delmar Crim, head of Bon
Appetit dining. Though an interesting character, he seemed to see his
job as representing the hopes and dreams of students to the dining
company- so he is way into sustainable practices! I think we can count
on him to support our initiatives, which is lovely.
Thank you all for reading and to all who came to the last meeting. Hope
to see more of you at the next!
