CIP Bloomington is doing a Service Learning Project at Wildcare Inc. for the summer session. Wildcare is a non-profit organization providing professional care to sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in Indiana. CIP students are volunteering to grow a “three sisters” garden (corn, beans and squash) for the animals.
Last week at Wildcare, students learned how to use the tiller and prepare the soil for planting. After viewing a presentaion on the safe use of the tiller, they took verbal directions from staff. Each student maintained their attention for approximately 10 minutes, used the machine safely and had a great time. This week, we will be planting seeds.
