SMC Center for
Environmental & Urban Studies
The CEUS is a living laboratory for sustainability, featuring innovative green building materials and practices. It provides information to help individuals become more efficient and lead a sustainable life that reduces impacts on the environment. Home to student environmental clubs and committees working on campus sustainability initiatives and research, the CEUS offers a resource library, information about environmental events and organizations. The CEUS is headquarters for Sustainable Works, and offers informative ecotours on request.
Demonstration Gardens – The CEUS features an all-native landscape, rain barrels, and demonstration vegetable garden. A few doors down (at 1718 and 1724 Pearl St., opposite the College) is “garden\garden.” The joint project with the City of Santa Monica is a public water-conservation experiment featuring two side-by-side residential gardens.
