Slade Hall, by university standards, is "a dorm," but the residents describe it as an open, loving community of intention. Slade Hall is the home of "Slade Nation," which consists of the environmentally friendly, socially conscious, fun-loving us. We are an environmental food cooperative, emphasizing sustainable community living. We are a house of love and live not in mere tolerance, but in acceptance and appreciation of diversity.
We, the twenty-four people who live here, practice a low-consumption lifestyle, including reduction and recycling of waste through composting and re-use. In the fall, much of our food comes from our garden and greenhouse. Some of what we grow includes kale, mint, tomatoes, and carrots. We also have an orchard consisting of apple, plum, and pear trees. We buy and cook our own food, trying wherever possible to be as conscious in our consumptive habits as possible. We buy responsibly and locally, including organic and only-vegetarian foods.
Living in Slade takes responsibility, love, and commitment. People who live here take part in meetings, cook crews, house crews, and working in our garden and greenhouse.
At Slade, we make the extra effort required to live happy, healthy, and environmentally conscious lives and to create the lowest impact possible on our wonderful mom, Earth. This means thinking about everything we do and how it affects the world around us.
