USM’s Corner of the Green Movement

Coming into school off of County Line Road, you may have noticed a garden off to the left near the transportation barn. Activity in Karen’s Garden, in honor of long-time Food Services director Karen Reimer, is described in the Environmental Action Team blog. Last year, the garden produced 200 pounds of tomatoes for use in the school’s dining room!

This year, the EAT is seeding far more tomato plants than they’ll be able to grow in the garden. As a fund raising effort, the club would like to sell extra plants. Additionally, they will be selling rough compost that they’ve been making over the last couple of years with the collected food scraps from the schools’ dining rooms.

All proceeds from the tomato plant and compost sale will go towards sustaining Karen’s Garden this year. Go here to order.
