My first idea for a project would be working with bees in some capacity. With colony collapse happening and the endangerment of other pollinators I think it’s vital that every step and precaution to ensure the longevity of the bees is taken. I know the apiarist and other people who work at Stratford Ecological Center so one of my first steps would be talking and bouncing ideas off of him to see what course of action would be best.
I would also be interested in making Bishop Bikes a project for this class. It has often been a Treehouse undertaking and I feel like extending it to this class would help establish and expand the program so more people can have access to bikes.
Another project would be to create a kind of cookbook or produce guide that would feature local plants that are available at places like farmers markets or places like community market. I would plan for the guide to incorporate locally grown produce. This would allow people to have an alternative to what is served for on campus dining in addition to being better in many different ways.
