Past Community Service Projects

Project: Skidmore Community Garden (photos by Eric Jenks)

Our project helped launch Skidmore's new Community Garden. Students toured the garden then spent the morning weeding, planting and harvesting fruits and vegetables, many of which are served at Skidmore's Dining Hall.

Students maintained the Spring Run Trail, raking, collecting debris and pulling weeds along the trail, which is a favorite of runners, hikers and cyclists.
