First General Meeting A Success!

Thanks to all who came out for the first general meeting for MCV Green Unity. We had students, staff, and faculty from all over MCV campus, as well as from Monroe Park, and recent graduates. Some of the main ideas that came out of the meeting were to try to start a campaign for turning off lights/printers/computers, making sure people have contact information to request repair of the many leaky faucets on campus (Plant Ops, service calls, 828-9444 for Sanger Hall, but they can also direct your call for the appropriate building), getting all campus buildings assessed for energy usage and waste output, etc., and trying to get a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) drop point established at MCV campus.

The next general meeting is planned for the week of August 30th. I hope to see you all there! In the meantime, feel free to email MCV Green Unity with any comments/ideas/concerns you have about sustainability at MCV campus or the surrounding community. We are especially looking for new members to get involved!

The minutes from this meeting will be published on this blog in about a weeks time. In the meantime, fell free to browse through the MCV Green Unity general overview presentation below.
