Students For A Green University
I'm currently parterning with Students For A Green University as the faculty advisor. This group is a delight to be with - they're creative, energetic, enthusiastic, idealistic, inclusive and a whole lot of fun! They are a literal tornado of activity and energy, deeply committed to making a positive change at UNBC and society. Working with students like this helps me to feel hope about finding ways out of the very grim outlook for finding a sustainable future. The photo was shows "green" potluck that the group organized.
PG Public Interest Research Group (PIRG)
I have been partnering with PIRG since the beginning of the Growing Community Garden project in the spring of 2010. This is another dynamic group of students committed to creating a more sustainable and positive future. My activities with PIRG have focused on issues related to food security and social justice. We collaborated during the fall 2010 to promote awareness of food security issues through the Food For Thought film series.
