S.A.L.S.A. (Student Alliance for Local and Sustainable Agriculture) is a student organization that provides outreach activities as opportunities for peers to learn about sustainability topics. However, S.A.L.S.A. members are volunteer and the organization is open to all students. UWRF does not select or appoint student educators or provide any formal outreach training. Therefore UWRF is currently not pursuing this credit.
