To start their Permaculture journey, Grade 1D were taught and guided by the grade 6's in the garden.  Amazing to see the older learners imparting their knowledge of mulching, watering, composting and planting on to the little ones.  Great fun was had by all🌸
With this talk, Dr. Nick Fuhrman encourages us to recognize the profound personal impact that we can have on others β€” both in and out of the classroom. Dr. Nick Fuhrman is an associate professor of environmental education in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education, and Communication. Also known as β€œRanger Nick,” he teaches graduate courses in educational program development and data analysis and undergraduate courses in environmental education and teaching methods. Dr. Fuhrman received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Forestry from Virginia Tech and his PhD in Agricultural Education and Communication from the University of Florida. His life’s passion is teaching, and he often uses live animals (such as snakes, turtles, and owls) in the classroom and on his monthly television series, Ranger Nick. Dr. Fuhrman and his wife, Jessica, have a son, Miles, who already seems to love animals and the outdoors as much as his dad.
