According to the enn.com article, “How much water do YOU use?” there is a  lot of ambiguity and confusion regarding the amount of water Americans use and how to be more efficient with water conservation. There is many variations on the perceptions of water use especially in urban areas. Hopefully this article will clear that up!

Food Prices May Skyrocket with the California Drought

This past January California saw its third consecutive year of drought-its worst on record. The snow pack in the mountains is just 15 percent of normal for Feburary. Bad news for the farmers and ranchers on the West Coast may also mean bad news for the rest of the country, as Californians grow nearly half of all U.S. farmed fruits, vegetable and nuts. Prices are expected to increase as we may need to import this produce from other countries. Image

The good news is our food co-op is on the east coast, and local, while St. Rose’s garden is as local as it gets, right on campus. Our CSA members don’t need to tighten their wallets or compromise a healthy meal.
