The Earlham Environmental Action Coalition works to educate and advocate for the environment on Earlham's campus and further abroad.
Located in the basement of Gurney (Environmental House) the Earlham Bike Co-op is a community space for the sharing of bike mechanic skills, a place for students to learn to fix their own bikes for free, and an organizing hub for bicycle activism in Richmond. The Bike Co-op hosts monthly Critical Mass bike rides through the city to promote biking as transportation, as well as hosting bike-friendly events and rides throughout the year.
The new Miller Farm is located on back campus near the equestrian barn. The farm currently has several garden plots, a hay field, and a community garden area. Miller Farm hosts Farm Day every Saturday from 10 am-1 pm on the farm and invites all interested folks to join the farmers in a morning of farm projects culminating in a shared lunch. Miller Farm's webpage contains more info on the farm and contacts for the farmers.
A residence for students, Gurney house is located on College Avenue and is a focal point for environmental activity at Earlham.

The residents maintain a small library of environmentally focused books available to the community, and strive to live ecologically healthy lives.
