Good things growing at Dal
Kudos to students and staff for your efforts to grow a greener tomorrow at Dal.
2007: Dal students vote in favour of a DSU fee referendum to pay $3 per student per year to help fund the new DSU Sustainability Office. A
portion of the fee also supports World University Services Canada (WUSC) and DalOUT programs.
2007: The university's Office of Sustainability is created to address rising concerns about global and local environmental and sustainability
2008: Food Services at Dalhousie University introduces the Farm-to-Table program, purchasing close to 50% of food served in residence dining
halls from local providers. By eliminating trays in dining halls, Dal decreases food waste by 4,000 pounds and conserves 197,000 gallons
of water a year.
2009: Dal students and teachers share tips and advice on easy ways of living a more eco-friendly life on campus with the inaugural publication
