Amanda Poole, Department of Anthropology, was interviewed by Scott Man about a project that students from her Cultural Ecology class are doing in partnership with the Indiana Community Garden.
Poole’s Cultural Ecology class is partnering this semester with the Indiana Community Garden in order to assist the garden in its mission to become a hub for sustainability education. Student projects involved participant observation, volunteering at garden events, and conducting original research in order to create educational materials for use at the garden. Student projects focused on garden activities and resources as they highlight key issues and concepts from food justice, ethnoecology, and seed saving. Projects highlight the value of both cultural and biological diversity at the garden. Students from this class will present on their research at the Appalachian Teaching Project Conference in Washington, D.C. on December 5 and 6, 2014.
