Each semester, students participate in Casey Time, an opportunity for Washington College to give back to the campus in honor of patrons Eugene B. and Betty Brown Casey ’47. The Student Government Association, Buildings and Grounds, and the Student Environmental Alliance teamed up to establish a pathway from the Western Shore residence halls to the campus garden.
The Student Environmental Alliance spent a weekend in the woods volunteering at Camp Tockwogh, a nonprofit summer program geared to help children understand their ecological relationship with the world.
The Student Environmental Alliance and Habitat for Humanity continued to construct a garden shed, planted the first fruit trees and berry bushes, and started sheet mulching to control weeds. The garden promotes campus sustainability and presents an opportunity for collaboration between Washington College and the Chestertown community.
