Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. The City of Victoria recently discovered that residents were using more than the Minnesota DNR daily recommended amount of water (75 gallons per person). The goal of this project was to develop a program to educate Victoria residents about water conservation practices. In partnership with project lead Cara Geheren, students in OLPD 5204: Designing the Adult Education Program, developed an educational program focused on water conservation, with an emphasis on irrigation best practices. The students' final report and presentation are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in OLPD 5204: Designing the Adult Education Program, taught by Catherine Twohig in spring 2016.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
