I have recently become involved in our Campus Greens club, which is loosly affiliated with the Green Party of Minnesota, it's more like we exude the same principles. Our plan for this year is to focus on Sustainability, particularlyin the school and town. We are located in rural Minnesota, and the school has been around for 150 yrs, the town for 100. Obviously they were once self sustaining. Now the school and attached monestary/abby imports most of it goods and the town does a lot of buisiness and shopping in nearby Saint Cloud (15min away). The town also has an increasing amount of sprawl style housing. We're planning on campaigning the students to shop more at the local grocery store than the store in St. Cloud by comparing prices and adding in gas and time. Also pushing for the local grocery store to buy more from local farmers. With the school itself (actually themselves, two schools acting as one) we currently occasionally have a "local food day". We're going to to push for monthy, weekly, and eventually constant local foods only in the cafeterias. We'll probably fight for bike racks in the old downtown but we don't know how to make a push for the town to redevelope the old downtown rather than continue to put strip malls and giant properties on the county highway into St. Cloud. What idea's does anyone have?
