On Friday, the Atlanta INtown Paper featured an article about EARTH University and its unique projects. The publication applauded EARTH for its work in “providing education for deserving young people who lack the financial resources to attend college,” and explained the benefits of EARTH’s internship programs.
The article also discusses the relationship between Georgians and EARTH University. The EARTH University Foundation, which supports “the education vision of EARTH through gifts, contributions…and other initiatives,” was formed in Buckhead, Georgia in 1989, and remains there today. In November, the Foundation will host a trail race to benefit EARTH. The Foundation also hosts and assists in other local events, such as organic potluck dinners, to benefit EARTH.
EARTH’s presence in the Atlanta area is ever-growing. Right now, there are two EARTH grads working at Bland Farms in Glennville, Georgia, overseeing the company’s “sustainable farming and practices and green initiatives.” Also, three EARTH students are interning in different parts of Georgia.
