NC State Extension Gardener Service-Learning

Educational Travel-Study Adventures Around the World

Travel is a unique immersion experience, engaging all your senses in a learning opportunity that expands your perspective and knowledge in important ways. We offer horticultural educational travel study programs focusing on plants, insects, animals, ecology, biodiversity, geography, history, and horticulture production.

While you can read about plants and ecosystems, nothing compares to the benefit of direct experience. Seeing plants in their native habitat provides a better appreciation for how and why they grow the way they do and an opportunity to compare the ways plants (and animals) adapt to various environmental constraints.

These travel-study adventures help us understand not only the ecology of other habitats but also provide insights on growing plants at home.
