Spring Break Ride for School Gardens

Sam Hagler and Tim McKinley—two Graduate students in the Sustainable Communities program—have decided to throw the traditional spring break to the wind and participate in a worthy cause instead. According to their facebook page their mission is to:

bicycle 250 miles in Northern California, to raise awareness for the importance of school gardens as supplementary educational tools. With your help, we hope to raise $5,000 to support the schools’ independent gardening programs.

The money they raise will be used to fund school garden projects in the Flagstaff area in coordination with the Foodlink and School Gardens Aciton Research Teams (ARTs) on campus. Currently, they have raised $375 of their $5,000 goal. To donate, please visit the Ride for School Gardens Razoo page and be sure to follow their journey this week by tuning in to their facebook page.

Good luck Sam and Tim!

Take advantage of the Yellow Bikes at NAU!

yellow bikes at the Union, NAUNAU Yellow Bike Program

Northern Arizona University’s Yellow Bike Program (YBP) has undergone some changes this year. It is still a free community bike program but now with a more secure and reliable checkout system in place.

To check out a yellow bike, visit the Du Bois Center, the University Union, or the new Health & Learning Center to fill out a liability waiver, and present your NAU ID. You will be provided a bike, a lock, and key, and a helmet (upon request). Hours are 7:30 AM to 7 PM Monday through Friday.

Bikes (including lock, key, and helmet) must be returned within seven days. If there is not a waiting list, you may check out the bike again if you would like for another seven days.
