Sustainability

Earth Day

Brown was one of the first institutions to really catch on to the local and sustainable food movements and Dining worked very hard in the first years of Community Harvest to help grow a knowledge base of what the food system looks like and what Brown, as well as its students, could do to be actively involved with "counter" movements.
