4. What We Do (or a mission statement)

Example:
Over the years, Earthkeepers has done a lot. In the last few years, we’ve started composting and recycling programs on campus using student volunteer help, organized hiking trips, field trips, panel discussions with guest speakers, and an annual week-long event called “Food and Farming Week.” During this week, students are able to learn about and participate in farming practices and food issues that are important today.

Each year we host a sustainability mini-grant competition, with the support of the Creation Care Council and the campus QEP. Other activities include:

  • Pumpkin carving
  • Leaf raking
  • Christmas tree lighting
  • Tri-weekly composting
  • Chicken care
