Education in Sustainability across a range of levels from elementary school through college has never been more important than at this time of climate change, habitat loss and other environmental impacts. Sustainability education is extremely effective when techniques are demonstrated in the field and the learning is hands-on. This project proposes to develop an underutilized Ball State owned parcel as a community resource and national model in sustainability education. The partners and beneficiaries for this project include Ball State students, public school students, and the general public.
