We have two campus gardens. The North Campus Garden is behind the Schmucker Science Building next to the Planetarium. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the compost bins, pick fresh vegetables,or just sit and watch the birds. The South Campus Garden is brand-new, and the bees just arrived earlier this summer! If you’re interested in volunteering in the gardens,send an e-mail to the Office of Sustainability.
There’s E.A.R.T.H. club for all things related to environmental sustainability and Net Impact club which is concerned with sustainability in business. But the chances are your major’s department club is involved with sustainable activities on campus. And if your major’s club isn’t involved, join them anyway, and start discussing how your major can get involved.
