Webinar Title

Ducks, Dandelions, and Dutch Ovens: Addressing Food Insecurity and Poor Nutritional Habits through Experiential Learning Practices


Webinar Description

Food insecurity is projected to increase as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, necessitating food security and sustainability skills. This presentation will highlight replicable and adaptable methods of providing food security and sustainability education from a cooperative community perspective, with an emphasis on intergenerational applicability of educational efforts, to ensure a greater likelihood of continued implementation of learned material by all ages (thus benefitting youth). Based on the 4-H motto of “Learn by Doing,” practical learning opportunities can provide community members with food security and sustainability skill sets, creating an ongoing, systematic process that can generate incremental or radical change. This approach requires collaboration with diverse community organizations, allowing individuals with different needs and already-developed skill sets to learn and share what they know. This open process is easily adaptable and replicable, in rural, suburban, and urban environments.
