Preston Residential College

Green Thumbs

The members of Green Thumbs are dedicated to inspiring growth within communities through the hands-on experience of gardening.

Preston students can engage in horticulture to experience the fun and sense of responsibility that comes from nurturing our environment. We are stewards of community areas including two vegetable plots (affectionately named Kale Yeah and Mint to Be), our backyard of beautiful flowers, and a meditation garden that brings a sense of peace to Preston residents.
