Join the Students for Sustainability (Frost Campus)
The Students for Sustainability (SFS) is the student-led grassroots group at Fleming's Frost Campus which meet on a weekly basis to build awareness and action on improving our individual and collective carbon footprint. Workshops and initiatives are driven by studentâ€™s interests, knowledge and skills which align with Fleming College Sustainability plan and promote the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Examples of workshops offered by the SFS include vermicomposting, plant- based recipes, seed starting, earth art exhibitions, eco friendly gift wrapping and much more. Workshops are usually held during common hour and are free for all students. SFS are also very active in many sustainability campaigns at Frost include supporting the ban of bottle banned water and fundraising for Frost Campus Apiary. For more information, drop by the SFS office next to the Frost library in room 321 or watch for upcoming activities through Fleming communications
Frost Students Association (FSA)
At Frost campus, we host the School of the Environment and Natural Resource Sciences, so many of the FSA events and projects are linked to sustainability naturally!
