Anyone in BC want to give these guys some technical  guidance?  Malaspina
University - College is starting up a  sustainable living project, looking for
student volunteers as part  of what looks like an interesting experiment. For
the movement,  if there are more University based community gardens then there
will be  more young people who are with the "program," and will either
participate  in gardens or support them upon graduation.

University based community gardens can be very  successful and sustainable
like the University of Wisconsin/Madision 's  Eagle Heights Community Garden -
_http://ehgardens.rso.wisc.edu/_ (http://ehgardens.rso.wisc.edu/)  but most
after a few seasons without folks to provide  continuity between graduating
classes and academic years,

I've copied the residential life person, Sandra
(mailto:reslife@malaspinaresidences.ca) .,  who is the point
person for this project. Her British Columbia phone  number is listed below.

Nanaimo campus b is set to be transformed into an  ecologically-friendly

Joanne Bakker, a Malaspina  alumni and support staff member, thought up the
idea and felt an  environmentally-friendly home is a step in the right
direction for Nanaimo  and the Malaspina community.
bItbs really important to encourage  students to think and act in favour
the environment on campus and give  them the opportunity to initiate change in
their surroundings,b said  Bakker.
bThis will be a pilot project and the new residents will be  helping leave a
legacy for other students.b
A resident advisor has  recently been hired to help coordinate the
sustainable activities students  decide upon. Some of those activities may
educational campus  programs, composting in residence, local produce
deliveries and
community  gardening.
Deadline for application is April 14.
To apply or for  information, please contact Sandra Christensen at 754-6506
