Tom Thumb’s Garden

Tom Thumb’s Student Garden is a new initiative (only a year old!) to get students outside, playing in the dirt, and eating real food. We will work this semester on expanding our garden plot behind Latin Way which means building raised beds, planting fall crops, and looking at creative uses of the space we’re given.

Students For a Just and Stable Future

Students for a Just and Stable Future is a Massachusetts-wide, student-led organization dedicated to achieving 100% clean energy in MA by 2020. The Tufts chapter collaborates with other Boston schools to raise awareness on campus and in the community, and to change environmental policy. 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. Our biggest campaign right now is Tufts Divest, our coalition to get divest Tufts endowment from big fossil fuel corporations.  If you’re interested in a more just and stable future, come check us out!

Sustainable Action Squad

SAS works on projects around campus to make Tufts University a more sustainable place! SAS evolved from Tufts Against Plastic, the student-led initiative to get water bottles out of Hodgdon Good-to-Go and get affordable Nalgenes into the hands of students. Sustainable Action Squad will focus on new sustainability projects, and hopes to make Tufts greener by working with administration, staff, and like-minded students.

Food For Thought

Food for Thought is the 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.
