Are you looking for a low cost, not-too-far from home adventure over Spring Break? If so, we invite you to join us on the sixth annual "Spring to Action, Break for Change" (S2AB4C) service trip through Washington to participate in a variety of sustainable agriculture and natural resources service learning projects! You will have a great time exploring both urban and natural environments and enjoy the company of other WSU students. This great trip is hosted by the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences (CSS), the Foundation for Sustainability and Innovation, and the WSU Center for Civic Engagement.
For this trip, expenses are mostly covered with the exception of 2-3 meals and miscellaneous personal expenses. CSS, the Foundation for Sustainability and Innovation, the CCE and community sponsors cover the costs for transportation, lodging and some meals. Individuals accepted to the S2AB4C trip can opt to enroll in a credit of Soils 499, and participants are required to attend a pre-trip meeting on March 5, 2014 at 5 PM. Space is limited, so apply early!
Civic Engagement Experiences
Spring to Action, Break for Change offers participants a variety of civic engagement experiences throughout the trip. The 2014 trip will caravan from Pullman to Cornell, Royal City, Vancouver, Portland, Dayton, and back to Pullman. Throughout the trip, students will visit, learn about and contribute to organic farms and community food projects. Participants learn about issues related to sustainability and food production and have several opportunities to engage in direct community service at community gardens, sustainable farms and a natural resources center. These experiences can be tracked in CougSync through the CCE
