Campus Sustainability Webinar

Tuesday, November 21, 2014
12:30-1:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time

Learning Gardens, Farms, and Teaching About Them Without Actually Having a Campus Farm

Learn about the creative ways that Lane Community College uses its Learning Garden including: funding, internships for credit, work-study use, integrating curriculum from across campus, and connections with 2 year degree programs.
Presented by Rosie Sweetman, Learning Garden Specialist, Lane Community College

Delta College looked to provide education around urban farming but without having an on-campus operation of their own. They created the Urban Farmer continuing education program as a result. The Urban Farmer sessions are geared toward the fledgling farmer, the backyard gardener, the chicken enthusiast, and for those who have never grown a vegetable but who understand value of cultivating awareness of good, clean local foods. Sessions are presented in a casual learning, sharing environment by individuals with hands-on involvement in local farming, sustainability, and food collectives. Learn about this program and how it is working at Delta.
Presented by Linda Peattie, Sustainability & Risk Mgmt Coordinator, Delta College
