Summer Urban Eco-Justice Program

Can a garden change how you see the world? This summer, you can earn three college credits in Environmental Studies  (General Science 2050) as work along with a team of students to transform unused space into green oases. You will spend time in gardens, farm markets and other inspiring, urban-outdoor spaces, learning about where your food comes from, where your garbage goes and why your actions matter. And you will use digital and social media to investigate, share and teach others about the ecological issues that matter to you. A green thumb is not required, just the ability to learn.
July 10 – August 17, 2017
Monday through Thursday
10:00 AM to 1:30 PM
Up to 3 college credits upon successful completion.

Metrocards and lunch vouchers provided.
