CRAFTSBURY COMMON, Vt. (AP) - Tiny Sterling College in northern Vermont has garnered two shots of national recognition for its sustainability efforts.

Sierra magazine has awarded a Special Achievement Award in Food to the school in Craftsbury Common, and the college has also been named one of BestColleges.com’s “Greenest Colleges and Universities.”

Sierra magazine put out a list of “Cool Schools” for 2015. The Sierra Club publication ranked Sterling second of 153 schools for sustainable food. The College grows 20 percent of its own food on campus and has one of the country’s first collegiate sustainable agriculture programs.

The “Greenest Colleges and Universities” listing ranks schools that show dedication to reducing on-campus waste and energy consumption, provide funding to student and faculty-led green proposals, and take other measures to benefit the environment.
