Class outside of the classroom – Environmental Studies 491

This spring’s service-learning class, our amazing teacher, Betty Woodman, and two Decatur High School students (front right) standing in front of Decatur High School’s organic garden.

Meeting the Director of Sustainability for the City of Atlanta, touring Decatur High School’s organic farm, and presenting to Coke-a-Cola are only a few of the cool opportunities students are pursuing through this spring’s Environmental Studies service-learning course.  The course has two student-run projects this semester, one helping to develop and market an organic farm and another devising an Atlanta green job industry audit.  “I’m excited to get hands on experience working with Decatur High School students and faculty on the garden and to see what we do come to fruition in the coming years,” says Philip Cheng, a senior in the Business School.  This course allows students to use their classroom knowledge in the field, while benefiting both students and the community.
