  1. great video of the turbine construction. St. Olaf is trying to become the greenest campus in the country. Turbine, composter, Stogrow etc. Pete Sandberg said they could put up more turbines in the future. I don’t know if they are considering it, but the option is there if needed. I think Jim Farrell may be writing a book about the greening of the campus.

  2. Griff:

    I see from the Earth Day schedule in the Northfield News that at 2 pm on Sunday, Mayor Lee Lansing, Carleton President Rob Oden and Carleton Vice President Fred Rogers are going to speak on sustainability successes and goals. Perhaps one of the goals will be reducing carbon emissions in Northfield.
