Amanda Poole, along with five IUP students and their community partner, Kay Snyder, participated in last year’s Appalachian Teaching Project Conference in Arlington, Va. on December 5 and 6, 2014. They presented on their research project with the Indiana Community Garden.

The Appalachian Teaching Project (ATP) focuses on student and community projects dedicated to building sustainable Appalachian communities. Students from ANTH 420: Cultural Ecology partnered with the Indiana Community Garden to meet two goals: coordinate programs that enhance the cultural and biological diversity of the garden; and create educational resources that assist the garden in its mission to be a hub for educating people about sustainable practices and global food issues. 

Poole, her students, and Snyder presented this project at the ATP conference.
