October 11 | Anaerobic Digestion


The Trimester of Becoming Block class is outfitting the greenhouse with a class-built Anaerobic Digester! Anaerobic digestion is the process of creating biogas (used for heating and electricity) by using microorganisms to breakdown biodegradeable materials in an oxygen-free environment. Once completed, the digester will work to keep the greenhouses sustainably warm throughout the winter!


October 10 | Peace Cabin


Eliza Bruns '18 and Lauren Hawley '19 work to clean up the David Anderson Peace Cabin. Built in 1998 the Peace Cabin has been a symbol for social justice and the 'Cabin' group has worked with local refugee populations and volunteered all around the state of New Hampshire. The Cabin itself hasn't been used in a few years, but this year Eliza and Lauren are working to change to that!  Click here to read more about the David Anderson Peace Cabin.
