Antioch Alumni & Friends – make an impact on student projects!
To celebrate Giving Tuesday, the Advancement Office will be awarding funding for three student projects. Students have submitted fantastic projects with focuses on sustainability, social entrepreneurship & innovation, and community engaged arts.
We need the community’s support to vote for their favorite student project with a gift to the College on Giving Tuesday (Nov. 29).
Each donation received – regardless of amount – counts as a single vote towards the student project of the donor’s choice. Join us! Check out the three projects below:
Do you think mushrooms are mysterious and mystifying? Do you wish you could grow your own at home without having the hassles and dangers of foraging? Then vote for this project so that Antioch students can learn how to grow an abundance of scrumptious, delectable, and health-giving mushrooms at home! This 2022/2023 winter term Antioch College is hosting a full-day workshop to show students how to properly propagate and grow saprophytic mycelium with simple lo-tech methods anyone can do.
Pansy is a feature length film currently in production. The project started with the intent to subvert poor transgender and queer representation in mainstream media. From its inception co-directors Rose and Lola hoped to capture joy and happiness in the mundane life of the trans and queer communities at Antioch. The project is entirely unscripted, the narrative stitched together from the hundreds of hours spent together with community, friends and found families on the Antioch campus.
In partnership with the Antioch Micro-farm and the Antioch Apothecary Collective, this project intends to increase the cultivation, collection and utilization of medicinal herbs on campus. We plan to use funds primarily to package and label herbal tea blends for distribution to members of the Antioch community. We are blessed with an abundance of wild-growing medicinals on campus, such as ginkgo, goldenrod, stinging nettle, spicebush, clover, dandelion, and more, all of which can be used in teas to promote well-being.
