Breakfast; the word
alone evokes pictures of sitting down in a cozy kitchen. Times of relaxation,
peace, and harmony fill your head, as the soft aroma of breakfast delicacies
wafts through the air.
Do you find your
mornings rushed? Is Dana just not satisfying your breakfast needs?

Interested in living off the grid? Building your own house? Green design?
Tools? The ground? Architecture? Gardens? Permaculture?
On Saturday, we are going to travel to some cool local examples of green design.
We will be visiting a number of families in the region that live in houses that
are in harmony with the land around them.
If you are interested in how to build your own home one day or how to
sustain yourself on a plot of land, then please come along.
This innovation grant proposal, which was funded in Spring
2011 presents an edible, self-sustaining permaculture landscape, composed of
fruit trees (apple, pear, plum), perennial herbs and flowers, and other fruit
bushes. Designed as a haven for students
and faculty to visit and enjoy an environmentally beneficial landscape, rather
than a simple mowed lawn. A long-lasting
asset to our campus grounds, and a step toward making our space more
environmentally sustainable, productive, and inviting this will be the first
permaculture design on the St. Lawrence Campus.
The Climate Action Plan has been accepted by the University. As we move toward zero-net greenhouse gas
emissions, students find exciting ways to celebrate and participate in this
work; including putting a new, environmentally friendly, twist on an old school
tradition. Beginning in 1982, St.
Lawrence students, faculty, staff and alumni have put at least one person on
the top of each summit of all 46 High Peaks (mountains above 4,000 vertical
feet) in the Adirondack Park in one weekend.
This year three students (including Alexander Duane and Andrew Skaggs) are
leading a ‘Carbon Neutral Peak Weekend Trip.'
They post, "If you went to the Peak Weekend meeting at the OC side lawn
today and found the trips a little too tame, or maybe not enough mileage myself
and three others are planning to bike to the Seward trail head, hike the
Sewards and bike home to Canton. We will
be leaving Friday afternoon at approximately 2pm and returning Sunday. Biking
will be 65 miles each way and the hiking will be close to 20 miles. We are looking for a few ambitious souls with
a love for the outdoors and bicycles. If
interested, please contact us."
