Garden Pool has been fortunate enough to develop long-lasting, and meaningful relationships across the globe. Currently, Garden Pool has an ongoing partnership with universities around the world. Garden Pool has interns from universities that work on local and global projects, and are trained in new programs such as SketchUp, drone technology, plus virtual reality. Garden Pool is creating model systems that are easy to scale and replicate globally and open to any user.
Not only does Garden Pool give interns the opportunity to directly participate on impactful projects, they have student chapters established at Arizona State University. Garden Pool ASU is a Student Organization whose mission is dedicated to researching and educating sustainable ways to grow food, to provide local hunger relief, replenish garden seeds to GP Seed Libraries, help others build sustainable food systems, and international humanitarian trips to disadvantaged communities. Potential travel destinations include: Ghana, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Morocco. GP ASU’s Student Organization members get to vote choose where they travel!
Currently, GP is opening bases in different countries to begin a study abroad program. Most recently, focus for developing a study abroad program has been on St. Kitts & Nevis, a Caribbean country that has been affiliated with Garden Pool initiatives many times before. Creating a fully equipped, accredited study abroad program will make Nevis a destination for American university students to observe and research topics in sustainability, environmental science, environmental engineering and more! This program will provide additional monetary support for on-going and future Garden Poolprojects in Nevis and the surrounding area, and serve as a primal point of contact for agricultural research and development.
Garden Pool continues to be excited about establishing more university partnerships around the world!
