Progress on service learning
Promising ventures of community activism in solving environmental problems.

After a good deal of discussion and preparation, my community scholars class is beginning work on various projects around the Williamsburg area. Some are developing and researching green roof technology to work towards its eventual implementation on campus buildings. Others are working on biodiesel technology to make use of excess vegetable oil and experiment on its functionality in various vehicles. Another group is working to bring local, organic food into the community. I am a member of the education group, responsible for addressing the ecological interests of the youngest generations. Within this, I am working on addressing storm drain runoff and its effects on the Chesapeake Bay watershed. I look forward to a productive future with all of these projects, and I hope to share their successes and lessons with you in the weeks to come.
