SUMMARY

Coordinated by the Environmental Science Club, students had multiple opportunities to visit and volunteer at local sustainable farms: Salamander Springs and Babe & Sage.



IMPACT

Students not only got to learn about sustainable farm practices, but also gathered information for the plans of our campus garden and general ways to conserve and reuse. 



PROCEDURE

Officers of the Environmental Science Club contacted the farmers and offered to volunteer in exchange for information and instruction. 



MISTAKES & LESSONS LEARNED

It is important to have support and interest from students so the day is useful for the farmers to take their time to teach and plan an event. 



FUTURE PLANS
