SCCO received an Award for the Planet, for third place in Eugene Citywide Contest among organizations promoting reduction of carbon impacts on the environment. Specific examples of actions everyone can take to reduce their impact can be found on the website: werenew.net/westernor/eugene
One step Santa Clara neighbors can take to reduce their carbon footprint is to grow a vegetable garden. Gardening information is available at OSU Extension Service and other places on the Web.
Santa Clara Community Garden has garden plots available for rent, and composting workshops are held several times each year. The next workshop is March 21, 10 AM, at 4110 River Road. Contact Peter at 541-321-0798 for more information.
