Trip Description:  

Seventh grade students will learn about urban farming through composting and bee-keeping activities, participate in vegetable taste tests at the UGarden, UGA’s student-led organic garden, and conduct science experiments to explore forest ecosystems as they hike through the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.

Guidelines for the trip: 

o You are responsible for transportation to the trip site.
o General volunteers should arrive at the State Botanical Garden by 9:00 am and check in with Berkeley at the Visitor’s Center 
o Experience UGA Ambassadors should arrive at either the UGArden or the State Botanical Garden at your assigned shift time
o Be prepared to engage middle school students!
o Do not have any food or drink with you during the trip. 
o Ensure that all students arrive at their destination.
o Have fun with the students! 

Rain Plan: In case of rain, or threat of rain, the trip will have to be rescheduled. The State Botanical Garden as well as staff from the Office of Service-Learning will make the final call to cancel the trip, or not, by 8:15 AM the morning of the trip. Experience UGA staff will send an email to all parties, including CCSD Transportation indicating that the trip is cancelled. There will be pre-selected rain dates to reschedule the trip.
