• form Garden committee
o Monday November 8th, Don Ramsey met with 5 members of EARTH Club to design and plan out the winter garden. EARTH Club will form a garden committee and they work on the garden at times of their choosing (and let all members of EARTH CLUB know about the times) instead of trying to squeeze gardening in the 20 minutes of sunlight. The committee will use EARTH Club funds to purchase seeds and plants. Gloves can be borrowed from the Recycling Department.
• Collection of Writing Instruments for recycling and as a fundraiser for EARTH CLUB
o Sanford sent EARTH CLUB 15 boxes for the Recycling Writing Instrument collection. We can spend part Monday’s meeting time, decorating the recycling collection boxes and designing the PR campaign for the program.
