        An innovative urban agriculture project, spearheaded by Seattle University’s Environmental Studies program, is helping to put fresh produce on the table for families in need in the Puget Sound region. The aptly named Urban Farm, located on a portion of King County's South Wastewater Treatment Plant, was created on unused land with the support of a $100,000 grant from Wells Fargo. After the area was cleared of debris and fortified with nutrient-rich soils, the first crop of fruits and vegetables were planted in January 2011. In its first year, the farm generated nearly 7,000 pounds of produce for area food banks. That number is expected to double by the end of 2012.

            To sign up for the course, visit https://www.edx.org/course/ubcx/ubcx-water201x-blue-new-green-3341 How can we innovate to solve the world's water crisis? This is a pressing question, given that over 1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water, and nearly 80% of the world’s population is exposed to high levels of threat to water security. Moreover, we are now facing high-stakes tradeoffs between water needs for energy, food, and the environment (the “water nexus”). In this 6-week course, you will learn about innovative responses to these challenges at the urban scale, focusing on Vancouver--one of the world's leading cities for blue-green design. In a series of compelling documentary style videos, you will meet inspiring innovators: architects, planners, engineers, ecologists, designers, academics, community activists, and even an artist. Each week, tutors from leading universities (including Harvard, Duke and Berkeley) will facilitate student discussions. As you learn about cutting-edge concepts in “blue-green design”, you will explore multiple perspectives from interdisciplinary research in the social and natural sciences, and be inspired by examples of regenerative sustainability in action. #BlueIsTheNewGreen

                    Title says it all. This Summer I really want to buckle down and improve my animation skill. I thought one good things to do would be environmental studies. It's an easy way to not only practice on some animation but to learn how to set up a good layout. I've been doing more small animations that involve more human movement but they're all too short to be put up here right now. I think I'll compile all of those in the end. So far they include little things like head turns, a guy doing pushups, blah blah, blah, blah - you get it. Hope you enjoy!
