College life includes books and gardens

Hopefully the sustainability movement will continue to expand on college campuses throughout the United States. Many universities, colleges and junior colleges promote the concept of sustainability by offering an environmental-centric major, sponsoring environmental clubs and promoting sustainability throughout the campus. Monmouth College (located three hours from Chicago) has take environmental awareness one step further. The college has encouraged its students to make sustainability a part of their everyday life. “A group of students live in the college-owned Garden House and work a half-acre of land and greenhouse in their backyard.” The students eat, preserve and donate the food they grow.
