Cornell University’s “Seed to Supper” Course Connects Students with The Community and Its Gardeners

In *All, Youth, Family, & Communities by Courtney

Horticulture students at Cornell University may be skilled in agricultural practices, but the university’s new Seed to Supper course is also specializing in the effect of gardening on low-income communities to build community engagement.

Students learn more than technical gardening skills in this class, such as ways to connect with diverse audiences by hosting webinars about the nutritional benefits of at-home gardening for food-insecure communities.

The course is applicable to all students who are interested in working and making an impact within their community and hopes to expand to more students this coming year.

Cornell University is not the only school that hosts a program such as this. For more information on these programs and how they work, read more here.
