Being an environmentalist doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself. The College’s annual Greenstock festival, held last weekend on campus, shows the fun of being green.

Each year students who work for Bowdoin Sustainability organize the event as a way for students to gather outside, hear live music, get their bikes tuned for free, and learn about student clubs with an environmental bent. Organizations that tabled at the festival included the Bowdoin Organic Garden, Bowdoin Outing Club, the office of Sustainability, Green Athletics, and the Yellow Bike Club.

Dining was on hand to serve up BBQ on compostable plates, cups, and cutlery. Several student groups performed, including a jazz ensemble, Sweet Anne, Meddiebempsters, and Xander.
