Student engagement helped start the Green Dining program, and there are many ways for students to get involved.

Internships are regularly available in Green Dining, Terp Farm, the Farmers Market, and the LEAF Outreach team (click for past internship descriptions).

There are several student run gardens on campus that welcome volunteers and sustainable food enthusiasts! For more information about working at these gardens, visit their websites:

Students are also welcome to get involved with the Campus Pantry. If you would like to arrange a food drive for your student group, residence hall, or department, email campuspantry@umd.edu.

To learn about internships, volunteer opportunities, and other events, sign up for the Terp Farm newsletter and Farmers Market newsletter.
