A Quick History of Europe

Europe, a continent of rich and diverse history that will soon be home to 32 more Canadians - at least for the next 4 weeks. During the Victoria portion of our field school, we were fortunate enough to have two UVic professors come in and teach us about Europe; Dr. Valerie D'Erman and Dr. Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly. 

But first, Cam (Dr. Owens) gave us a lecture on our destinations and showed us an abundance of maps, which naturally made the group excited since it is a geography field school after all. These maps included, but are not limited to, topics such as:

Springridge Commons

On Wednesday we traveled off campus to Fernwood to help out at the Springridge Commons permaculture project. We were met by several local activists; Chris Norseth, Aaren Topley, and Chris Hildrith, all of whom are involved in VIctoria's local food system. Aaren introduced the ideas of food security, food sovereignty and food literacy, which he and CR-Fair, the organization he represents, are trying to improve in Victoria.

The Art of Conversation with Chris Bowers

Monday, May 11, 2015

Who embraces the stochastic nature of the UNIVERSE? 


It's early on a Monday morning, no student wants to be in the classroom after a very luxurious 2 week vacation period, yet they are all smiling and excitedly communicating with each other. Wow!

This was all thanks to Chris Bowers who came into the class to lead a workshop on engaging the unexpecting, strangers, or other travellers in meaningful, authentic conversation.
