I would like to announce that we are having another open house. The
Student Compost Cooperative will be hosting an open house this friday
April 12th from 4pm to 6pm at the UF Energy Research and Education Park.
The address is 2610 SW 23rd Terrace Gainesville, FL. This time around we
are showcasing home gardening of the potted, vertical, and hydroponic
varieties. We will be building a hydroponic window farm, a potato box,
and a few more activities that should be just as hands on. We are also
going to be cooking another meal on the biogas stove and will provide
refreshments. Just like last time, you can bring a bucket full of food
scraps for us and take home a bucket full of compost for your home
garden. Also feel free to invite anyone you know that would be
A tentative schedule:
4pm Meet up/networking/food & beverages
430 Introduction to potted plants and germinating seeds.
5pm How to grow potatoes vertically.
520 Vertical Hydroponics: A "how to" seminar
(Note: If you would like to bring food waste to compost this Friday,
please avoid bringing meats or oils.)
The SCC is a student-run cooperative, organized by the BioEnergy and
Sustainable Technology (BEST) Laboratory, and has an open door policy,
meaning food waste can be brought to the composters at any time.
Also there is a 60 percent chance of rain tomorrow so be prepared and
bring an umbrella for if it rains. If it is lightning between 4 and 430
we will reschedule for early next week.
Thanks for your time,
