Name or title of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:
Tribe Truck Farm

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:
The Tribe Truck Farm is a biodiesel truck with a garden in the bed used for education and outreach purposes on campus and in the community. The Truck was purchased with the help of a W&M Green Fee grant and a Kickstarter campaign by two students who taught themselves how to install the garden and the biodiesel conversion kit. The Truck has been in service for 3 years now and has increased W&M Sustainability's outreach efforts in food related and transportation fields. Many locations visited are public schools, although people are always thrilled to see it at general events such as the Earth Day Festival and Farmer's Market. The Truck teaches the importance of food and that gardens can be grown anywhere, educational value is added through the biodiesel conversion.
