Students Nurturing Alternatives in Landscaping
The vision of SNAIL is re-purposing locations all over campus where students work as a community to grow their own plants, food crops and otherwise. It is an opportunity for students to create living and experimental food laboratories across campus.
This year SNAIL will be designing and building its first garden. This project is a strong fit for students either with some gardening experience and/or interest and initiative to be a part of the process of starting a garden (and a collaborative group) from the ground up.
This project is coordinated by Allison Baker, a student in the Sustainable Communities Masters Program interested in focusing her thesis work on student led gardening initiatives. SNAIL is entirely student led and run (versus under the coordination and leadership of NAU’s Organic Gardener). Students in this group will meet regularly on Mondays at 4:00 pm and any non FYSeminar students in the NAU community interested are encouraged to join as well.
