CRT Help Desk

A brief description of the student educators program (1st program):

The CRT Help Desk was created in spring 2019 and continues throughout the school year. Trained sustainability student interns have a table set up in our on-campus dining venues during heavy traffic dining hours to assist and educate other students about how to properly sort their waste after dining, specifically helping students understand our dining venues switch to compostable ware and why it should be composted rather than recycled.
Our student interns have previous training in waste minimization and sorting through "trash tent" events and waste audits during our weekly intern meetings.

A brief description of all other student peer-to-peer sustainability outreach and education programs:

We have a student-led sustainable cooking class program.

"Seasonal Suppers" are held three times a year during the different growing seasons in Virginia to help students understand what is in season, where they can get fresh local food in/around Rockbridge County, and how to cook with these different foods. At the end of the student-instructed cooking class, everyone shares the meal. These classes are held at the Sustainability Theme House.

Another part of this program is "Sustainable Cooking Classes". Students teach other students sustainable cooking tips and skills. These tips specifically focus on food waste reduction for example teaching students easy, safe preserving techniques like how to freeze vegetables before the go bad to avoid throwing them away.

This is a new program for the 2019-2020 school year that we will enter in our STARS data next reporting year.
