New EWB Local Project and Community Service Opportunity

EWBers, we have some super exciting new projects and opportunities to get involved with!!!

EWB is starting up a collaboration with Pitt’s Plant to Plate. Plant to Plate strives to connect people with the environment and the food they eat by involving them in the planting and cultivating process. Plant to Plate has a garden plot between Atwood and Bouquet Streets, right behind Antoon’s Pizza. If you would like to find out more about their organization, check out the Plant to Plate website.

The collaboration involves designing and constructing an irrigation system for their current and extending plot. In addition, the current greenhouse on the plot will be evaluated to make it more efficient and sturdier.

If you are interested in getting involved, stop by a meeting!!! They are held every Tuesday at 7PM at the Einstein’s in Benedum!

In addition to the local project, EWB, along with AICHE, is planning a soup kitchen community service event this coming Saturday, March 23. The group will meet at Towers patio around 8:30AM and catch a bus to the First United Methodist Church in Shadyside by 9AM. The event usually lasts about 4 hours and you are able to eat the food you make for lunch as well. EWB has done this in the past, and members who have attended said it was a great time!! If you are interested in attending, email njt19@pitt.edu with your name, phone number, and email.

Thanks EWB members!!! We hope to see you at some of our future events!
