Students and teachers from each program undertake a community project working alongside locals to achieve a community-based goal.
Students and teachers:
painted the recycling center, community center and bus stop
built concrete paths, wooden fences and lab walls
installed plantings/trees in gardens, the butterfly enclosure, sustainable forests and parks
weeded gardens, paths and parks
extracted ginger essential oils
Seeds of Change Research has worked with one group of women in particular to develop a “mariposario” butterfly garden exhibit and small research lab for butterfly propagation. Students often work alongside these women to help!
