Chesapeake Field Experience
Over the last 5 years students have been finding their way from Washington DC to Eastern Shore to discover how the Chesapeake Bay is a microcosm of environment, economy & community issues around the world. Students of Restoration Ecology & Plant Sciences from Cornell University taught by Dr. Tom Whitlow have traveled to explore Poplar Island as a strategic public private partnership project. We have also hosted students from World Learning, ESA MidAtlantic Chapter, Baltimore City Schools who have worked together on various projects including events, developing gardens, and serving as interns. Want to join us? Check out the contact page and let us know your interests! Have a project related to sustainability that could benefit from the support of some next generation talent? Let us know that too!
In March we will begin a new project – Jr Master Gardeners/ Harvest Market Enterprise…
More about this soon!
Together with an interdisciplinary team of next generation leaders of a sustainable future we are working to develop a new public access, interdisciplinary career course, with coaching support and benefits of professional networks locally and globally. We seek to bridge the gap between education & workforce needs for career transitioners across sectors and stages of career, and representing a variety of cultures, disciplines, all focused on questions of “sustainability”. Our goal is to build our next generation talent pool, ready for hire! The platform is under development but we would love to have you join us at CareerEcologia!

During the year, they move from theory to practice, investing 3 months of service in institutions such as World Bank, CARE, UNICEF, EPA, Women Thrive Worldwide, Pact, Ashoka, Integra, IDEX, World Cocoa Foundation, World Resources Institute, to name a few! Here they are in their own voice:
