One person with one solution won’t save the world. A group of people making small changes can have a big impact though. All around the Agricultural Campus people are working towards environmentally sustainable practices.
Chartwells, the campus’s food service provider, has gone trayless, substantially reducing its liquid waste.
After a massive re-design of the campus print centre, we are now one of only a handful of Forestry Stewardship Council certified printers in Atlantic Canada.
The biomass ash by-product generated from the steam plant has been used as a liming material on the university’s agricultural land to raise pH.
The amount of CO2 the campus saves by using steam instead of fuel is equivalent to removing approximately 518 cars from the road for one year.
The campus provides seasonal and storage crops for consumption at its on-campus dining facility through a two acre, on-site organic demonstration farm: Chef’s Garden.
