Does the institution give preference to local products and businesses in its purchasing decisions? Local food purchases, which are covered in OP Credit 6: Food Purchasing, are not included in this credit.:
A brief description of the program:
Our Aboretum Team utilizes this preference much more than any other department on campus. We purchase local trees, fertilizer, and other grounds equipment through local nursuries located only a half mile from campus. We only purchase when our on campus greenhouse and garden cannot produce or propogate the desired plant.
