The Gibbs House is an emerging program run by the Office for Sustainability that serves as a living laboratory for students to implement their sustainable design solutions and projects. The historic 150 year old house serves as a home for our Gibbs Fellowship Program, borders the expansive Asylum Lake Preserve, and features a developing permaculture landscape full of resources and projects to get excited about. Please check out our website, stop on by, or contact the Office for Sustainability if you would like to learn more and get involved with the Gibbs House!
Gibbs Farm Stand is OPEN for the season!
Check us out on Thursdays from 3-7 at the Gibbs House.
