I teach graduate and undergraduate courses at USF and integrate field research, group projects and service learning into many of my courses. Below are links to a few recent examples of projects my students and I have been working on with communities and organizations in Tampa.


Learning through Gardening

My students and I have been researching the expansion of gardening and urban agriculture, and environmental pedagogies in schools and community-based organizations with a focus on how gardens and gardening can enhance learning and well-being. For a recent service learning course, Anthropology of Childhood, undergraduate and graduate students partnered with Moses House’s “youth heritage garden” to understand youth experiences with gardening and impacts on food preference and access.
