Campus Sustainability and the Organization That is Paving the Way

The Garden Club

CSI Garden Club Logo

 Our mission is to increase sustainability of the campus by creating and sustaining a   community garden that provides the campus center auxiliary service with fruits and   vegetables. Instead of relying entirely on produce brought in by delivery trucks from   distant farms, we incorporate students from a diverse array of CSI clubs and   organizations into a volunteer community network system where the time that they put   into maintaining the garden is returned in their own plot for themselves. In return, CSI   alleviates some of its carbon footprint, students gain a sense of stewardship and reward.
