WHAT IS SWAG? The Sustainability, Wellness, and Garden Committee ("SWAG") consists of three teams that jointly deliver programming to help MES students and faculty build personal and community practices that are healthy for themselves and for their environment
- Sustainability - focuses on practices that reduce our use of non-renewable environmental resources and increase the overall health of the Earth.
- Wellness- provides students, staff, and caregivers opportunities to lead healthier lifestyles though increased physical activity and healthy eating.
- Garden - enhances MES curriculum with hands-on life science and ecology experiences that expand students' knowledge of food systems and encourage healthy food choices.
