"Sustainability and America" students harvesting organically grown grapes and potatoes during their Fall 2008 field trip to Gong Garden Farm. After reading about community supported agriculture, community gardens, and the differences between sustainable agriculture and modern industrial food systems in the United States, students were able to learn about these topics firsthand thanks to a "working" tour from farmer Pete Calanni.

As part of her Leadership Development coursework, Earth Week 2009 student intern Susan Kornacki (pink hat below) worked with more than ten student groups to host an enormously successful eco fashion show. Not only did the more than 300 people in attendance learn about green design, clothing reuse, local sustainable businesses, and social justice issues within the global fashion industry, but the project also included a campus and community clothing driving, which donated more than 850 pounds of clothes to the Rural Ministry in Dunkirk.

"Writing, Sustainability and Social Change" Students handing out compact flourescent lamps (CFLs) at the Green Expo on April 24, 2010. Generously funded by a Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo grant, the CFL give-away event will generate  collective savings of $87,048.00 in energy bills over the lifetime of the light bulbs. The total CO2 emissions saved by replacing 1350 incandescent bulbs with CFLs is 897,264 lbs  (407.00 tons!)
