Otis College project

ECM is collaborating with professors at nearby Otis College of Art and Design.

Otis students planting Food in a FlowerpotWe have helped design the curriculum for Human Ecology, one of the required foundation courses in Otis’ Sustainability minor.

The curriculum we designed includes ideas from the Permaculture and Transition movements.  It covers topics such as Collaboration, Peak Oil, Powerdown, Soil ecosystems, and the Artist as a Change-Maker.

We are helping another professor with the Urban Agriculture class, which touches on issues as far ranging as organics, soil life, GMOs, food justice, distribution systems, and powerdown.
