Amherst Garden Club has now been around for three years, and always expanding. Located behind the Zu (Humphries House) we have 9 large outdoor garden boxes and a newly constructed greenhouse that houses four indoor beds. We grow a variety of vegetables, experiment with fall and winter crops, and give students a space to grow whatever vegetables, fruits and flowers they like.
New Recycling Rule: Put All Recyclables in One Bin! As part of the college's ongoing efforts to reduce campus waste, Amherst implementing a single-stream recycling program in 2013. That means that all recyclable products (paper; rinsed plastic bottles, metal cans and glass jars; clean pizza boxes, aluminum foil and trays; clear plastic clamshell containers; empty aerosol cans; milk/juice cartons; and so on) can be disposed of in the same bin, and the college's recycling partners will do the sorting. Questions? Call the Recycling Center at 413-542-5038.
