About the Teacher
"What I am hoping is to instill in them is an appreciation for the environment so that hopefully they would want to take care of and protect the nature that is around them."
Heather Livingston is a senior Environmental Studies major at Dickinson College. After her study abroad experience last fall with The School for Field Studies in Costa Rica, Heather grew to understand and appreciate the concept of sustainable agriculture. While in Costa Rica she applied to work at the Dickinson College Farm and began working there when she returned to the states in January. Heather worked at the farm this summer and is currently a student worker. In addition to her farm job, she is developing a farm-based curriculum for children, under the guidance of farm manager, Jenn Halpin. Heather hopes that by way of education, younger generations will understand the importance of organic and sustainable agriculture.
