Hello I’m Shelby Perry and I’m a senior. I am a soil and water sciences major and I’m taking this course for the sustainability certificate.
Hi, my name is Emily Ramsey and I am a Doctoral Student in Anthropology. My research interests lie in organics and small farming, and I’m aiming to complete the Organic Gardening certificate along with my coursework. What better way to get some hands on experience than to intern at UGArden, meet awesome people, and spend my summer outside helping to grow food for the Athens community!
Hi I am Josiah Panter. I am a fourth year student majoring in music performance,minoring in Horticulture,and getting a certificate in Organic Agriculture. This internship is a requirement of the certificate however I am also very excited about this hands on learning opportunity.
Hi, my name is Ty Brooks, and I’ll be a UGArden intern for summer 2017. I’m a graduate student in the ALEC department at UGA and plan to work in agriculture and food systems once I graduate. I couldn’t pass up the chance to get credit hours for being outside, learning about farming, and getting some free produce too!
These roots came from some beets, however they look like rat tails to the untrained eye. They are perfect for a good laugh.
Finally, after much ado, the recycled vegetable fuel project is almost complete. The photo below shows me siphoning some golden veggie oil from the huge storage container at the Georgia Center. They are kind enough to aid in this project, helping Athens move one step further on the path to sustainability.
