creating list of Community Sustainability Initiatives

I am working on putting together a list of community sustainability resources for the incoming (and current) students, as well as planning a workshop/panel or a driving tour for the new students' orientation in August. Does anyone have a "community sustainability initiatives" they would like to suggest we let the students know about or show them, or resources they might use?

Examples:  the  etc.? It could be vegetarian/vegan restaurants or markets, transportation-related, energy-related, food-related, recreation, etc.
If you have a short description and contact/location information, that'd be invaluable. I'll plan to make a map and a handout for them'all and us'all.

Throw what you have at me at and I'll see what seems to work best.

Submissions to date:

Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC)
UI Arboretum
Student Sustainable Farm
Campus Bike Project (or the ones in Champaign or Urbana
Randolph Street Community Garden
Student Sustainability Farm
Lincoln Square Farmers' Markets
Idea Store
Habitat for Humanity ReStore

I will be using the website from the Office of Sustainability as my base, so check here if your items are already listed:

Thanks for any info you can provide.
