Shepherd University Intern, Carrie Arvin will present an overview of her research project to the Education working group. Her project concentrates on the Red Roc pig breeding program; its documentation and a correlation between breeding and behavior. Her presentation will take place at Creekside Farms of Jefferson County, 6 Winebrenner Rd. Shepherdstown.
Sustainable Shepherdstown is in need of new folks to join our Steering Committee. We have had several members leave due to life changes, new directions, relocations, etc. We thank them for their generous time and help and wish them the best with their new endeavors.

However, that leaves a void on our Steering Committee. We are looking for some new energy. We meet once a month; the date and time is always a matter of consensus. Lately it has been on a Sunday afternoon, but that can certainly be changed.

If you have been thinking that you might like to get active with our group, perhaps to head up one of our working groups, help to schedule, organize, interact with other groups while representing Sustainable Shepherdstown, volunteer, or get more hands-on in terms of sustainability, now is the time to contact us.

Please send an email to or contact one of our current Steering Committee Members. Thank you. ________________________________________________________________________
