Greenhouse Mod Application (Mod 46) - Fall 2015
The Greenhouse Mod strives to model healthy communal living by connecting to the planet and community through a commitment to supporting and sharing delicious local food. That means we support each other in the stewardship of the Enfield Solar Greenhouse, eat and prepare communal dinners every night, meet weekly as a mod to check-in and address house concerns, while hosting monthly events to enliven and engage our campus community.
