Green Chemistry Club

A brief description of the student educators program (2nd program):

The Green Chemistry Clubs motto is *Saving the world one reaction at a time* As such we usually take a couple of educational tours of businesses or labs each year and/or have a few guest speakers come to talk about careers in chemistry. Each year the club participates in national chemistry week and Earth day (week) activities on campus. This involves some training/planning and we usually have a booth setup in the science building or at the clubs event on campus with educational materials and a couple of student volunteers for about four hours. Community service projects include chemistry presentations in elementary schools, soil and water testing, and building a small biodiesel plant on campus.

The Green Chemistry Club is open to anyone interested in learning about how chemistry can be changed to reduce environmental harm and help to save the planet from climate change and pollution.

Name of the student educators program (3rd program):
Learning Garden Club

A brief description of the student educators program (3rd program):

The Learning Garden Club is a student group dedicated to growing organic food on campus. The group focuses on educating fellow students about the value of local, sustainable food systems. The garden is designed as a living laboratory that demonstrates the connections within human and natural systems. Students strive to help people understand how their food choices can impact their personal health, environmental integrity and the well-being of the community.


A brief description of the student educators program’s target audience (3rd program):

The group focuses on educating fellow students about the value of local, sustainable food systems. Student educators receive ongoing on-the-job training and mentorship from the Learning Garden Specialist in various gardening topics.
Peer-to-peer outreach: Students are the ones who harvest, wash/process, and deliver vegetables and fruit for donation. Some of these donations go to Food for Lane County, and some go to student volunteers over at Titan Court who distribute the produce amongst LCC students. Student educators assist with volunteer days and offer peer-to-peer leadership in the garden. They also distribute food to the Culinary Arts Program, Catering, and to the Rainy Day Food Pantry.

A few of the current work studies are also doing some peer-to-peer education amongst themselves for independent projects (and one for a Co-op internship), researching and teaching each other about native plants/pollinator species, organic/integrated pest management, soil health/nutrients, and edible cut flowers.
