Hill College’s Environmental Biology, Sustainable Environmental Cultivation of Organic Food and Medicinal Herbs

This course will teach students everything they need to know about sustainably growing organic food and medicinal herbs, no matter where they live.  Through exploring environmental biology topics like population growth, community and ecosystem dynamics, and conservation and restoration, students will learn how to create backyard and worm bin compost, make compost tea, follow an organic fertilization and pest control schedule, and how to design an optimal garden plan for whatever dwelling they live in. This hands-on class will include in-person or virtual field trips, as well as hands-on labs.  The missing link to holistic nutrition: homegrown organic food!
