Longmeadow Eco-House

Mission

The residents of Longmeadow House are dedicated to living in an environmentally conscious fashion while on Bennington’s campus, as well as providing programming opportunities aimed at educating the campus community on issues that impact the environment at large. Longmeadow affords students the opportunity to explore the implications of different environmentally conscious ways of day to day living (such as recycling, energy and water conservation, eating habits, composting and others).

Longmeadow residents are encouraged to work with both the on-campus College community and local Bennington community partners to expand their own vision of sustainable practices and environmental education, while simultaneously planning and executing two campus-wide programs per term for Bennington students, faculty and staff, and two in-house programs or events per term aimed specifically at Longmeadow residents. Programs might include: workshops, speakers, film screenings or others.
