Garden Living Learning Community

Garden Living Learning Community

Theme Description: The Garden Living Learning Community is located in the Undergraduate Residential Center (URC) on Clairmont Campus. Approximately 12 students in this theme hall will support the Clairmont Educational Garden and enroll in ENG 221: Food Cultures and Food Communities (Fall 2019). ENG 221 is a 1-credit writing course that will count towards the Sustainability Minor. As part of this class and as part of the Garden Living Learning Community more generally, students will tend to the garden and participate in activities related to gardening and sustainability. A few of these activities include field trips to urban farms and farmers markets, communal dinners, and conversations about food, gardens, and farming. We will consider local and global perspectives on these topics. Fulfilling the mission of Educational Gardens at Emory, we will also endeavor to share our gardening experiences with other members of the Clairmont Campus community. Garden Living Learning Community members will decide together what to plant and collectively, we will enjoy the fruits of our communal efforts. Prior gardening experience is certainly valuable, though not required for applicants. 

Who Can Apply? The Garden Living Learning Community is open ONLY to rising third- and fourth-year students at Emory (College, Business, Nursing, etc.), who will not be studying abroad for 2019-2020 Academic Year and will not be graduating in the Fall 2019. All students of diverse beliefs, cultures, and fields of study are encouraged to apply.
