Student involvment is a driving force in supporting St. John's sustainability initiatives. Student sustainability coordinators in collaboration with earth club members help maintain the Student Community Garden. All produce harvested is donated to St. John's Bread and Life soup kitchen.
During the school semester sustainability coordinators help campaign for Campus Conservation Nationals and RecycleMania.
At the end of each spring semester sustainability coordinators with Grow NYC run a food and clothing drive called "Chuck It For Charity". All food and clothing collected is donated to Wearable Collections and City Harvest.
Composting and organic soils management is also another important initiative that is run by student involvement.
