HOW
WE WORK

Students

  • Opportunities to earn credit while co-creating a curriculum that will enable you to become a leader in environmental justice and climate solutions. As a student you have a couple of options for working with us. We can help you design an independent study project and serve as a liaison connecting you to places and projects that are modeling various approaches to climate solutions that you are interested in. Together, with your Flexible Pathways (VT) or Experiential Learning Opportunity (ELO) coordinator we will co- design a syllabus around topics, activities and places that will not only provide you with skills and experiential learning opportunities, but you can also earn credit or evidence in a number of different standards. 

  • Tailored mentorships in climate solutions in their community. Examples include working on food justice issues, planting pollinator gardens at schools, working in RC native tree nurseries, designing climate solutions with local experts and more! 

  • Community Service hours supporting regenerative food systems by helping to seed, plant, tend and harvest food justice gardens and native tree nurseries as well as working on local farms and community food forests. You can get your community service hours working with us in our food justice gardens and partnering farm hubs where you can get hands-on experience with regenerative agriculture. We have tree nurseries and food justice gardens that provide endless opportunities to get your community service hours while doing satisfying and meaningful work. 

  • Exposure to agricultural careers and local regional food systems. 

Schools

  • Environmental assessments for school grounds and neighboring farms that include soil and water testing enabling students to conduct their own research that will improve the biodiversity and create regenerative land use plans for their school grounds 

 

  • Opportunities to gain skills in practical climate solutions including working on farms practicing regenerative agriculture and agroforestry techniques.
