Sustainability - Get Involved!
Join a CSA! (updated December 11, 2014 -- check back for new information coming soon)
For several years, many member of the Endicott community have enjoyed the benefits of fresh, organic vegetables delivered weekly to campus from a local farmer. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) provide opportunities for farmers to be supported directly by their customers. CSA members pay for their produce up-front, providing farmers with capital to plant crops. CSA members receive weekly "shares" of the crops throughout the growing season, either at the farm location or at a drop off location.
There are a number of local CSAs in the region. We will be posting a list here soon.
First Light Farm of Hamilton has offered a drop off location at Endicott for several years. Sign up for the 2015 season will be coming soon, so check back here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Endicott Environmental Society is in full swing!
Contact the Environmental Society to be added to the email list or to get involved.
Students may wish to use the campus a laboratory for environmental study. Past projects include:
- A Study of Low Flow Showerheads in Endicott Dorms
- A Study of Electronics Recycling at Endicott
- Evaluation of Take Out Containers
- Design of Recycling Containers
