Featured Recipe

Chicken ‘n Veggie Wraps

Ingredients

1/4 cup mayonnaise

4 fajita size whole wheat flour tortillas

12 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts, grilled and

sliced

1 medium bell pepper

1/4 cup sliced onion

2 cups mixed salad greens

Greenhouse Project

One of our projects this summer is to build a greenhouse out of recycled 2 liter soda bottles. We’re going to need around 4,000 to create the whole thing! So if you have any bottles you would like to donate, please contact one of the Stewards and we can either pick them up or you can drop them off at the soon-to-be greenhouse (in the backyard of 1902 Oak).

Landscaping

A plan has been made for the plot net to the Eco House (used to be 1908). Coming up in the next couple weeks we will be hosting a couple of work days in order to get the landscaping done. We will be needing help tilling, digging holes and planting lots of things. We are currently working on pricing out everything that we have planned for the yard. If you know anyone or anywhere that would be willing to donate or give us a discounted price on the items below, please let us know.

  • Fruit trees
  • Berry-bearing shrubs
  • Other native shrubs

Idaho’s Bounty

Idaho’s Bounty is an online co-op that is devoted to bringing local organic food to the community. The Stewards are going to front the membership fee for the campus and we are compiling a list of people who are interested. If you are interested in ordering food from them this year, email the Stewards.
