Earned Certificate in Engaged Leadership: 2019
We collaborate with Ecovillage to address … environmental issues caused by our agriculture and daily lifestyles.
For our project with our partner, we … created a sustainable farm based on the concept of regenerative agriculture.
It was important for us to commit to our community partner because … they share our group’s mission to live sustainable lives but on a larger scale.
Our group has benefited in that … we’ve learned many skills involved in sustainable agriculture and we’ve built stronger ties between ourselves and the greater Ithaca community.
We’ve learned that community-engaged leadership … often involves collaboration and shared responsibility among everyone involved in a project.
The best part about the group community-engaged leadership program is … it further developed our ability to think as leaders and view problems from various, distinct perspectives.
Going forward, we plan to … live our own lives more sustainably and help others continue their lifestyles with less adverse effects on the environment.
