A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:
Garden of Hope: "Denison students work with youth who are mandated by Juvenile Court to do community service all summer, planting, weeding and watering a cooperative garden" in nearby Newark, Ohio. (http://www.denison.edu/campuslife/servicelearning/helping_hands_garden_of_hope.html) Denison students volunteer with local second graders at the Spring Valley Nature Center in Granville. During a trip over January 2010 break, students worked at a nature reserve in Georgia. In Spring 2010, the Office of Sustainability sponsored two Sustainable Agriculture Workshops for the college and local community.
