Real World Sustainability: Greenhouse Students in the Community

Achieving environmental sustainability requires creativity and active involvement, not just understanding. Greenhouse students who took Mary Arthur’s 1-credit course, “Real World Sustainability: Stepping into the Community” during the spring 2015 semester share their experience in this video. The course provided students with the opportunity to learn how others have developed new ideas in the service of sustainability, and how they are implementing those ideas through the development of various types of organizations.
