North Country Green Homes Tour


Interested in living off the grid? Building your own house? Green design? Tools? The ground? Architecture? Gardens? Permaculture?

On Saturday, we are going to travel to some cool local examples of green design. We will be visiting a number of families in the region that live in houses that are in harmony with the land around them.

If you are interested in how to build your own home one day or how to sustain yourself on a plot of land, then please come along.

If you have specific questions, please email Alexander Duane

Permaculture Innovation Grant

This innovation grant proposal, which was funded in Spring 2011 presents an edible, self-sustaining permaculture landscape, composed of fruit trees (apple, pear, plum), perennial herbs and flowers, and other fruit bushes.  Designed as a haven for students and faculty to visit and enjoy an environmentally beneficial landscape, rather than a simple mowed lawn.  A long-lasting asset to our campus grounds, and a step toward making our space more environmentally sustainable, productive, and inviting this will be the first permaculture design on the St. Lawrence Campus.

Community Contra Dance with the Greenhouse


The Greenhouse and TAUNY are hosting a Community Contra Dance

The Contra dance will be at St. Mary's Church which is just a few minutes from campus (located on Court Street). Grab a bike or grab a friend and head on over.

The dance starts between 7:30 or 8:00.  If you are a beginner, come at 7:30 and get a crash course on the art of contra dancing. 

There is a $5-10 optional donation at the entrance which will help sponsor and host other contra dances in the future.

Carbon Neutral Peak Weekend


The Climate Action Plan has been accepted by the University.  As we move toward zero-net greenhouse gas emissions, students find exciting ways to celebrate and participate in this work; including putting a new, environmentally friendly, twist on an old school tradition.  Beginning in 1982, St. Lawrence students, faculty, staff and alumni have put at least one person on the top of each summit of all 46 High Peaks (mountains above 4,000 vertical feet) in the Adirondack Park in one weekend.

This year three students (including Alexander Duane and Andrew Skaggs) are leading a ‘Carbon Neutral Peak Weekend Trip.'  They post, "If you went to the Peak Weekend meeting at the OC side lawn today and found the trips a little too tame, or maybe not enough mileage myself and three others are planning to bike to the Seward trail head, hike the Sewards and bike home to Canton.  We will be leaving Friday afternoon at approximately 2pm and returning Sunday. Biking will be 65 miles each way and the hiking will be close to 20 miles.  We are looking for a few ambitious souls with a love for the outdoors and bicycles.  If interested, please contact us."
