Become a Green Grove Volunteer


Volunteer Support

The Green Grove Initiative is supported by individual volunteers as well as local/campus organizations, businesses, and alumni. You can help by volunteering on gamedays to educate tailgaters on how to recycle in the Grove.

Education and Outreach

Volunteers will provide education and outreach on the Green Grove Initiative to tailgaters in the Grove and Circle. Volunteers will educate tailgaters on the recycling system, as well as make sure each tent has a recycling bag. To volunteer or for additional questions, please email

Why should you volunteer?

There are many perks to volunteering with the Green Grove initiative:

  • Community service hours
  • Free Green Grove T-shirt
  • Reserved lower student section seating

The EPA Gameday Challenge is an annual competition for colleges and universities to promote waste reduction at their football games. Through this initiative everyone in the Ole Miss community can improve our efforts while working to win this challenge.
