The great snow this past week brought a great opportunity for some fort building all over campus. On Thursday students participating in the “New Paltz Snow-day Snowball Fight” constructed a top-notch snow castle.
Who knew recycling bins could help create such a magnificent fort.

chillin’ with compost.
Don’t want to foot the bill or space for a kitchen-sized composting bin? Love saving scraps, but can’t seem to battle flies? There are many solutions for a saving your scraps in the kitchen that don’t require fancy equipment or a trip outdoors to the compost bin after every meal. Recently, a few of our readers told us that they kept their food scraps in a larger tupperware container, so they just pop the top off and keep ‘em sealed for a couple of days before the run to their bigger bin. Another few of our readers fill a compostable box and pop their scraps in the freezer, keeping flies and the smell away for a day or two. You crafty compost kids! Way to keep up the good work while it’s cold – your warmer-weather planting will reward you soon.
