Seed to Supper

The challenge of eradicating hunger is a complex issue. One approach is accessible in every community: gardening. Seed to Supper is a new two-semester course sequence that teaches students how to collaborate with community partners to prepare residents across the state to grow a portion of their own food on a limited budget. Students teach novice gardeners and prepare facilitators to educate others about the skills of gardening and, equally as important, the nuances of other kinds of growth it can foster. Partnering with local food banks and other agencies, students lead this facilitator preparation using video conferencing and electronic presentations in three upstate New York regions. The students also learn about food security issues while working on summer internships that are offered at food banks throughout the state.
