The Center for Environmental Studies is directed by Dr. Janet S. MacFall. It heads the Community Garden and the Environmental Center at Loy Farm and hosts activities, clubs, classes, and seasonal festivals. The Center serves students across all disciplines at Elon and the greater community. Both the Farm and the Garden grow a variety of crops throughout the year, and the Center directs a number of environmental projects and research at both locations. The goals of the Center for Environmental studies are to promote community outreach and education, champion conservation, encourage research, and support student initiatives.
