Green Notes

Farmer’s Market on Tuesday, July 17.

Happy July! Did you know there is a Staff Tour of the Emory Farmer’s Market coming soon?  On Tuesday, July 17 and 31, at 11:45am. Taylor Spicer, of the Office of Sustainability Initiatives (OSI), will be your tour guide.  She will highlight the benefits of eating food in season and ways to prepare seasonal dishes. She will also suggest ways to reduce food waste and provide ways to find healthy eating resources.  Pick your day and register for the tour by the day before.

The next Farmer’s Market day is July 17 and it’s the Tomato Festival. The summer is a bountiful season of fruits, vegetables, breads and yummy food. Plan to get out and enjoy the market – at the Cox Hall Bridge from 11 am to 3 pm.

OSI has a new website at There’s a beautiful picture of the WaterHub if you haven’t yet taken the tour. Things are much easier to find now, including incentive-funding applications, even for becoming a Green Office.

Emory Water Hub.

Emory Recycles is another site to recommend visiting. The site has a lot of great information about the efforts underway on campus as well as information on what happens with our composting and recycling when it leaves the campus.  This one is popular: “Hard to Recycle Items” station locations, listed by building.  These are collection stations for glass, ink jet cartridges, styrofoam, aerosol cans, bulbs (CFL, incandescent, fluorescent, halogen) and batteries too.
