Tufts Climate Action
Tufts Climate Action group is dedicated to building leadership on and off campus, and contributing to the international climate justice movement. We recognize our responsibility as Tufts students in guiding our institution towards real climate change solutions. This year, TCA is focusing on five distinct campaigns: 1) natural gas; 2) divestment; 3) administration and academics; 4) environmental justice, and 5) agriculture. Our tactics have included rallying, marching, demonstrating, holding sleepouts, talking to legislators, and generally putting pressure on the state government to get MA off of coal and other fossil fuels. If you’re interested in fighting for a livable climate, come to our meetings!
Meetings: Mondays at 8:30pm in Miner 112

Food For Thought
Food for Thought is Tufts’ platform for addressing contemporary food issues through a variety of lenses, including environmental, political, social, ethical, economic, and nutritional. Through weekly discussion and mindful action, we seek to educate ourselves and our communities on these issues, inform individual food-related choices, and engage with and improve the food systems to which we are connected.
Meetings: Thursdays at 9:00pm in Eaton 203

Tom Thumb’s Student Garden
The goal of Tom Thumb’s Student Garden is to get students outside, playing in the dirt, and eating real food. We’re currently working on expanding our garden plot behind Latin Way, which includes building raised beds, planting winter crops, and looking for creative uses for the space we’re given.
Meetings: Wednesdays at 9pm in Eaton 201
