Yale Divinity School Sustainable Garden & Composting

Built by students during the summer of 2009 Yale Divinity School garden and compost bin is managed by students throughout the year.  The project is a part of the Divinity School’s effort to include the environment in the study of theology. Growing sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, scallions, carrots, lettuce, herbs and native flowers, the gardens goods are often used by the Berkeley Center for a community dinner following Eucharist Services.  The garden allows students to get their hands dirty and equips burgeoning religious leaders with the knowledge to further dialogue regarding the importance of sustainability in local communities. The Divinity School has also embarked upon a process of developing a Sustainability Action Plan for its campus and administration.
