Typical student housing options do not offer college students the opportunity to embrace their green thumb. To remedy that issue, the Florida State University Sustainable Campus organization has opened a new Seminole organic garden, giving students the chance to experience hands-on gardening.
Do you want to utilize your green thumb, but your living arrangement doesn't allow you the space? FSU's Seminole Organic Garden may be the perfect place to let your talents shine.
Florida State University celebrated the grand opening of the new Sustainability Hub at the Seminole Organic Garden with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Oct. 20.
The hub is an outdoor learning center dedicated to educating students about renewable energy sources and promoting sustainable lifestyles. The pavilion-type structure is located behind the FSU Circus and overlooks the Seminole Organic Garden.
If you attended the FSU vs. NC State football game this past weekend, you may have noticed something different during the Marching Chiefs' halftime performance-- band members using a small device known as the "eFlip".
Next to the FSU Seminole Organic Garden sits the Sustainability Hub ornamented with newly installed solar panels. The three alumni, Scott Minos, Justin Vandenbroeck, and Chris Diaz, all provided support for the project.

Florida State University is moving forward on the path of solar sustainability — thanks to three alumni and FSU Sustainable Campus.
Tallahassee Democrat / FSU's garden will pair students to garden plots where they will grow vegetables and learn about sustainability practices through the Sustainable Campus initiative.
Tallahassee Democrat / These beautiful buildings give our campus more than just aesthetics. One building's natural light illuminates our books of knowledge while simultaneously conserving resources, and another contains colorful walls that provide cleaner air. As we enter these doors and sit in these chairs, we are in the midst of sustainable design. A design with purpose.
