Health Improvement Program

This is a 4-week class.

This class is co-sponsored with the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences.

Summer is an exciting time in the garden! Warm temperatures and long days mean fast growth and development, and the beginnings of the harvest season. Join us in this 4-session class at the O’Donohue Stanford Educational Farm to learn about strategies for taking best advantage of all the health benefits the garden has to offer.

Topics will be based on student interest, and may include:

* how to grow summer vegetables, manage pests, diseases, and weeds, maintain soil health, and use water efficiently

* tips for harvest and preparation of healthy food from the garden

* simple yoga stretches and ergonomics for safe physical movement in (and out of) the garden

* how to enhance the harmonious experience of connecting with nature by practicing mindfulness in the garden

Instructor: Anna Lee is a PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER). She is a Master Composter for San Mateo County, and holds an Advanced Certificate in Ecological Horticulture from the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz, and an MS in Agroecology from UW-Madison.
