What's New.....

2019/06/04 (updated 2019/06/06)Community Garden ApplicationCome Garden with us this summer!

It's that time of year again, when we begin our growing season in the Middlesex Community College Community Garden!

Applications due by Monday, June 17th.

The application is for a 2' x 8' plot within our Community Garden, and will be reviewed by the MCC Sustainability Advisory Committee. To help us make improvements to our garden and offset costs, there is a $25.00 fee, payable in the Student Accounts Office (Bedford Campus, Building 8, Campus Center, Rm 225).

Plots are assigned on first come, first served basis, and will be designated as soon as your application is processed. This plot assignment will then be emailed to you.

There will be a garden prep event and plots will be available for planting starting on Friday, June 7th after 1:00pm. If you would like to assist in preparing the garden, please join us!

In our garden, we do not use any pesticides or chemicals, so we ask that you do not bring them to use within your own plot.

The application for your plot may be found here.

2018/10/29Thanks to Sustainability Committee member, and librarian extraordinaire (which simply means she's a librarian) Kim Money Priddy, we present a link to a site which gives basic operating information and data about the geothermal system operating in Trustee's House in Bedford. Follow this link:  http://www.groundenergy.com/console/dashboard/75/. Faculty may find this site a useful source of real-life datasets for use in classes.

MCC is continuing to install water bottle filling stations. The initial goal is to install one such station in each MCC building. So bring a reusable water bottle to campus to fill and you'll never need to use up another plastic cup again. A picture of a station can be seen with a click here.
