A Plan for the DeKalb County Extension Outdoor Living Sciences Laboratory. DeKalb County, Georgia.
Shelnutt, Morris W.
Innovative methods are outlined for developing an outdoor farm site, which would serve as a tangible educational facility, in an urban county. Although such a facility would primarily serve an extension youth program, the environmental instruction would benefit citizens of all ages in grasping a better understanding of man's relationship to the natural environment. Such a facility would provide an ideal atmosphere to demonstrate projects relating to a farm and the urban setting and to teach environmental sciences and ecology. Facility plans and proposed costs of the farm project during its preparation and after its programs are underway have been included. Courses included in the curriculum are: The Farm and You, The Farmer and the Farm, Introduction to Genetics, Reproductive Systems, Special Programs for Physically Handicapped (Blind, Wheelchair Patient) and Educable Mentally Handicapped, Environment and Outdoor Appreciation. Processes for the evaluation and modification of programs are also included. (EA)
