“Throughout the years, we’ve seen our volunteer numbers decline,” Jessica Bowen, director of the Center for Sustainability, said. “The number of people interested in the garden, who like to talk about it and hear about it has increased, but the number of volunteers able to dig in the dirt and tend in the garden has declined.”
The many sustainability initiatives on campus have been supplemented in the last several years by the Green Revolving Fund (GRF), a unique source of backing for projects suggested by the Aquinas College community.
The Center for Sustainability has provided a platform for students to exchange the things they’ve forgotten about in their closets for clothing they genuinely love.
