Support the Tomatoes in the Community Garden

submitted by greena@augsburg.edu

There are some wonderful tomatoes growing in the community garden, but it’s time to get them some support before they fall over! Tomato cages are expensive and not always effective, so we’re holding a Great Tomato Stake-Off in the garden next Friday, June 30th at 5pm. We’re willing to be creative with staking materials, but we’re especially looking for donations of the following: wooden stakes (~ 6 ft tall with a pointed end), bamboo poles, tall metal stakes for fencing, or anything similar to those materials. Can you check your garages and alleys for these materials and anything else you think could creatively be used to keep tomatoes upright and happy? Donations can be dropped off at the Sabo Center anytime before June 30th. Contact Allyson if you want confirmation that your scrounged materials will actually be useful for staking tomatoes!

Student Hosts

submitted by mangana@augsburg.edu

The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is seeking students who can act as hosts for visiting students in the Fall of 2017. Students are asked to step forward as hosts to other college and university students who will be visiting the Twin Cities for the Forum from the 14th-16th of September.
If you know you are living on campus next Fall, then you would make a perfect host! Anderson, Luther, and Mortensen would make great spaces for visiting students to stay, but any on campus living area would be fantastic. We are looking for students who would be willing to help out and provide space for 2-3 nights.

As a host you will have the opportunity to get to know a student outside of Augsburg. It is a great experience that allows you to meet some new faces and contribute to the college’s rich academic community. By being a host you can get to know a student from another college or university and get to know more about other colleges and how they run. You will be the student’s best introduction to the city! If you want to gain a new connection and meet students from other colleges/universities, then this is perfect for you!

If you would like to be a student host, or have any questions about hosting please email or call!
