The Happy Hollow garden beds are IN! Thank you to all the volunteers, young and not-that-young, for helping out! The Town Crier reports here, and more pictures here

After 2 weeks of training, Happy Hollow students are now avidly recycling every little scrap that can be recycled. Great work, everyone!

By the end of this month Claypit Hill and Middle School will have put ONE TON of food scraps into the Compost Bins (instead of the incinerator)! Thank you to all involved!

Loker started Deep Recycling in October and the kids are doing a fabulous job.
