Bob Sutherland, right, manager of the Clark Foundation’s Mohican Farm on Otsego Lake’s west shore near the Springfield town line, answers the questions of Dennis Tallman, retired Tallman Enterprises proprietor, after “Reducing Our Carbon Footprint One Bag of Garbage at a Time,” this afternoon’s final lecture of the season in the Friends of the Village Library’s Sunday Series.  Sutherland told how composting waste food is saving The Otesaga significant garbage-disposal fees, and the resulting soil is being used for Clark Foundation replanting and construction projects, this year mostly for the Clark Sports Center expansion.  Despite the first ideal day for gardening, a room full of composting fans filled the trustees’ meeting room at Cooperstown’s Village Hall to hear Sutherland.   At left is Nathan Tripp, and between Sutherland and Tallman are Antoinette Kuzminski, who has participated in projects with Sutherland, and Dotty Hudson.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
