This week Net Impact had our last meeting focusing on sustainability in the arts. For this meeting, members were split into teams and given supplies to design a poster showing what sustainability meant to them. The final posters highlighted topics such as encouraging IU to turn off the stadium lights when there isn't a football game, planting more trees, and demonstrating various ways that together we can help to the planet. Congratulations to the winning team (picture 2) whose poster will be digitized by our market team and placed around campus!
At the end of September, a group of Net Impact members spent the morning volunteering at the Wonderlab Garden. Members worked with master gardeners from Purdue to weed and rake leaves, preparing the garden for fall. In addition to learning more about the master gardening program, we learned about the importance of having public gardens where people can come and enjoy nature. One of the purposes of the Wonderlab Garden is to show people that even though Bloomington may not have the most nutrient rich soil, lots of plants can still flourish. If you're ever looking for a quick trip off campus to destress from classes, the Wonderlab Garden is a great place to go!
