Grow food for campus and community. Create Change. Eat Well!
What: A fellowship program for two Fort Lewis College students with an interest in food security, community gardens, sustainable agriculture, orchards, and healthy eating. Fellows work approximately 20 hours per week from May 1st through August 29th overseeing and managing our on-campus garden and orchard, while also connecting with local organizations to learn more about our local food system. Additionally, fellows will work approximately 5 hours/week in April to get the garden set up, as well as, September and October to wrap up of the garden season and offer educational garden workshops to our campus community. Fellows register to take ENVS 393: Environmental Agriculture (4 credits) during the first summer session (May 3rd -June 5th). Students who have previously taken this course or who can demonstrate equivalent experience are welcome to apply and request exemption from this course. To capture the knowledge and insights gained during the fellowship, Fellows will be asked to design a Capstone project that directly benefits our campus or community.
