The Green Forestry Education Initiative


This service-learning project focused on the process from forest to furniture, for education and further learning. It also aimed to establish a teaching tool for future programs and classes in ENVS/NR, and initiate possible long-term projects. The students involved documented the felling of the ash tree and black cherry tree that were being used for the construction of the table and bowls. This project hoped to promote social capital and create connections between students, the land, and community-based activities and to foster a greater awareness of sustainable consumerism and locally constructed products.
