Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
The Rollins Climbing Club is a relatively new student organization that brings the fun and excitement of rock climbing to Rollins! Rock climbing is a comprehensive sport that works muscles not normally used, gives you a full body work out and builds self-esteem. What feeling is better than conquering a mountain? (Even if it is a man-made one!)
Organic Growers of Rollins began during the 2009-2010 academic year and made a huge impact that first year winning the 'Best New Student Organization' award at the Student Organization awards ceremony in April 2010.
OGR has 6 cedar 4X8 garden boxes located behind the Steward House [which houses the Bach Festival Society]. OGR members grow organic produce and herbs during the year in 1/2 these boxes and donate the use of the other boxes to class use. Dr. Judy Schmalstig has used the boxes for her Medicinal Botany class with students. Also, Holt School adjunct Andrew Landis used the boxes for a Sustainable Agriculture class.
