Composting Focus Group — In the coming weeks, the School of Public Health will be launching the first phase of a composting program at the Wolfe Street and Hampton House locations. Initially this program will collect only materials from the kitchen and animal cage wash areas; eventually the program will be expanded to include dining areas and departmental pantries. A focus group on composting is being formed to assist in developing a successful outreach and communication campaign for the second phase of the program. The group is scheduled to meet at noon on Tues., Oct. 19, in E9519 SPH. Food will be served. To sign up, e-mail lhouser@jhu.edu.
