    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course explores the concept of community food security through community engagement and learning to garden. Students examine community service learning through the lens of sustainability leadership. Denissia is a great instructor the course is demands alot of work but you have fun doing it. I think great course for any interested in community engagement.

    Course highlights:

    The course talks alot about food security and ways to create food justice through community engagement and gardening. The class got to participate in hands-on gardening activities in the Lane Family Garden, LGL Community Farm Stand and outreach to members of the Rose Community Development Center and the Wild Lilac Child Development Center.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are interested in food security and working with the local community this is a great course for you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class in particular, because grant writing is a valuable skill to have when one plans to work in non-profit. Even if one is not planning a career n non-profit, it offers a great deal of critical thinking; which is important when writing cover letters and answering interview questions. This class is a senior capstone class; something that every student is required to take.

    Course highlights:

    Because this was a one day per week class, every class was a plethora of information needed to effectively write a grant. The first two classes were all about getting to one another, splitting up into groups of four, and learning the story behind the environmental non-profit organization we would be working with. Each class after, was dedicated to a section of the grant. By the last day of the term, each group produced a polished up final document to be shared with the class, graded and handed over to the executive director of the organization; in this case was Rising Tides of Portland.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go in with an open mind. If you go in with expectations of what you think it should be like, it may cause some unnessesary anxiety about the course. The ability to think outside of the box will save you well in this class.
