We love sharing our work with students
In fact, some of SCLT’s founders were recent Brown University graduates whose energy and idealism continue to inspire us. That said, our staff are very busy, and ask you to do a little homework before contacting us about a research project or internship.
- Please take some time to look through our website. You can learn a lot about SCLT’s history, programs and impact here and from our news archive and videos, which will answer many of your questions (even some you didn’t know you had!). For instance, read about our gardens and farms in the Land section, and the basics of sustainable growing practices in our Resources section. (And don’t miss our very own zombie movie!).
- Think about how your project or involvement can benefit SCLT and our growers, and not just how we can help you. Familiarize yourself with our mission and consider how you might give back to our community in some way.
- Gardens take a long time to get established and flourish. So do relationships. We would rather have you involved in a long-term project than a short-term one, so you can get to know us and our programs. Also, please call us at least three weeks before any deadlines you are facing.
Finally, we encourage students who are interested in our work to sign up to become members. You can do so here.
Want to bring students to visit one of our farms?
