Currently Teaching:

"Integrating Sustainability into Training and Curriculum" online course, which is an elective in the Sustainability Leadership professional certificate available through Graduate and Professional Studies. If you don't have time for the entire certificate program, this course is open to the public as a stand-alone option.

"Gardens, Design and Practice"--a 1-credit course taught during Block I of Fall semesters, and Block II in Spring semesters. In this course, students work with me as well as student course assistants to get hands-on experience in the student-run organic garden and the Permaculture Garden near Williams Hall. We also cover the basics of gardening and permaculture with content varying depending on the season and tasks at hand. See more info about the Permaculture Garden in the sidebar.
