ROOTS FRUITS & JAMAICAN ECOLOGIES:PERMACULTURE INITIATIVES IN THE BLUE & JOHN CROW MOUNTAINS 

(Summer Intensive 2012)

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This interdisciplinary service-learning course (3-credits, 6-weeks) is a partnership between IU’s Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies (CLACS), the Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust (JCDT), and the Bowden Pen Farmers’ Association (BPFA) in rural eastern Jamaica. Summer 2012 will mark the 6thoffering of the course and Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary of independence! To celebrate we will help coordinate a special trail hike/adventure race on the historic Cunha Cunha Maroon Pass Trail. In Jamaica students will also participate in permaculture and service-learning initiatives associated with sustainable agriculture, ecotourism, national park management, and forest ecology. Permaculture is a systems-thinking approach to designing productive ways of living for humans while working with and sustaining natural environments. Summer intensive class sessions at IU (Bloomington) will provide students with an understanding of: 1) basic permaculture design principles; 2) cultural practices in rural Jamaican communities; 3) ecological characteristics of mountainous regions in the Caribbean; and 4) the ways in which humans (re)shape local environments through farming and other activities. The seminars given in Jamaica with farmers, conservationists, park rangers, community leaders, herbalists, spiritualists, poets, and musicians, place further emphasis on the ROOTS and the FRUITS of indigenous agricultural, environmental, and cultural practices.

Blue & John Crow Mts. National Park and the rural farming community of Millbank in the Rio Grande Valley of eastern Jamaica
