"I'm an ESYS major and I'd like to do my senior project here."
Roger's Community Garden is recognized by the department as a valid internship for senior Environmental Systems majors working on their capstone project. We ask that any interested in interning here for that purpose follow the RCG mission statement and base their project around sustainable farming methods and food insecurity.
First and foremost, RCG is a community garden, not an experimental ground. Existing RCG projects may be worked and expanded upon, and new projects may be established so long as they are of a size and scale that can be maintained by future student volunteers. It is expected that ESYS projects will be based on data collection and analyses, and that the projects themselves will, in the end, make RCG a more productive space.
RCG may provide limited funding to ESYS students for specialized material purchases if requested in time to be added to the TGIF grant application. ESYS students will need to provide a list of materials and a plan for their utilization in a timely manner around week 3 of Fall quarter. All other onsite materials at RCG would be available for use.
Take these statements into consideration when applying.
