Upcoming Landscape Architecture student trip

Students in a landscape architecture course at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA first traveled to South Africa in 2008 to build a memorial garden at Ikageng Itireleng AIDS Ministry, led LAND Project co-director Liza Lightfoot and LAND Project collaborator Professor Dave Watts.  In 2009 and 2012, new groups of Cal Poly students traveled again to the Eastern Cape to restore and build more gardens with and for children in the region.  In September 2014, Liza and Dave will take a new class of Cal Poly students to the Eastern Cape and work with The LAND Project’s key collaborator, the Ncedisizewe Co-op, to run participatory community development meetings, improve the school garden, and conduct a community needs assessment survey.  More to come!
