WHEREAS, the Student Environmental Action Coalition (hereafter denoted as SEAC) has obtained grounds for two gardens, to be cared for by SEAC members and other members of the College, including Faculty;

WHEREAS, SEAC has been in contact with Dining Services, who has agreed to integrate produce from the student garden into dining hall menus in order to make local, organically grown products available to students;
