North Central College - Naperville, IL

Students’ outdoor assignment for environmental studies class changes their view

Students in the Environmental Studies 120, People and Nature class, tend campus garden and landscaping as part of class work and learn more than gardening.

Two columns of rectangular black plots of dirt along the pedestrian spine produce a variety of vegetables the campus community can eat at Kaufman Dining Hall.

Several students have helped tend these plots as part of Environmental Studies 120, People and Nature, taught by Martha Bohrer (photo, below), associate professor of English.
