Community Gardens & Farmer’s Market for Curtis, Neb.

Teaching & Engagement, 2014


 

 

Results

This project expanded upon an existing farmer’s market course at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture (NCTA). It included a community garden being developed to enhance student service-learning by making the garden available for the community and 4-H members. Undergraduate students mentored 4-H members, which strengthened the relationship between NCTA and community members and provided a model for rural communities to establish gardens that foster growth in citizen relationships and youth engagement.
