Our Impact Linda Vista Initiative for Spring 2017 is to strengthen and expand the existing partnership between Montgomery Middle School and University of San Diego. Students from Darby’s Bio 113 course will continue working on the Montgomery cover crop experiment started by Fall 2016 Bio 113 students and assist with the curricular activities that incorporate the experiment. The expansion aspect will include creating a space for Montgomery parents to participate in the garden as well as to collaborate with Bayside Community Center’s garden. Judith Liu will incorporate the issue of health and wellness in Linda Vista (as identified by the residents themselves) into Soc 410, Community, Consensus, and Commitment that will include a teacher from Montgomery and recruits from the Community Leadership Academy program, Bayside Community Center, and others as Community Scholars.
