Under the direction of Linda Drake, Director Center for Social Responsibility and Community (CSRC), and Dr. Wendy Lascell, Assistant Professor Geography and Environmental Sustainability, SUNY Oneonta has been awarded a $3,976 NobleCause grant to implement the “Harvest Share Buddies Program: A Service-Learning Partnership” at Riverside Elementary School in Oneonta. Through the Harvest Share Buddies Program, Dr. Sean Robinson (Biology) and Dr. Greg Fulkerson (Sociology) will join with teachers at Riverside Elementary School to establish a service-learning project for approximately 80 SUNY Oneonta students. Through this unique, cross-disciplinary project, the college students will assist elementary school classrooms in planting and harvesting grow boxes; lead lesson plans developed by faculty around food, society, the environment, and plant biology; and coordinate school-wide harvest days in December 2016 and April 2017.
