  • Plant Breeders Without Borders
    Anthony Leddin
    Welcome to Plant Breeders Without Borders! Similar to the "Doctors Without Borders" concept, our organization aims to match volunteer plant breeders with projects overseas in underserved areas in the hopes of promoting the exchange of plant breeding knowledge. These volunteers would train locals to be plant breeders, as well as mentoring undergraduates involved in the project.  Ideally, the project leaves behind new, native plant breeders that are able to continue breeding work with support of the plant breeding volunteer from back in their home country.  If you are interested in involvement with this project, please contact Anthony Leddin at aleddin@valleyseeds.com.   Partners Melb Uni versity WA University  Sydney University Latrobe University FAO -CIAR Centre of underdeveloped crop species (Crops for the future) based in Malaysia. Australian Business Volunteers (ABV) Crawford fund The Noble foundation

  • Experiential Learning in Agricultural Sciences (ELAS)
    Martha Mamo, University of Nebraska-Lincoln dnolan2@unl.edu
    Our hope is that this community will become a wealth of information shared.  Please use the Discussion Board above (and within each specific area)  to post lesson plans, images, and other items of interest.  From time to time we will move items that have been posted to the most appropriate areas of the site. In the Discussion Board above, the first few postings contain materials to help you learn how to create dynamic posts and attach materials to your posts. ELAS Events and Workshops will be a place for us to provide lists of specific events of interest to ELAS. ELAS Pedagogical Resources link in the left menu is an area where we will share information about materials available on the web and through other sources. ELAS Teaching Tips link in the left menu will be used to share tips and tricks that have been found useful, and possibly warnings of things that don't seem to work. ELAS Activities and Lesson Plans will eventually contain a variety of actual activities and lesson plans for your use. ELAS Leader Contacts provides you with a list of the original leaders of this site, including their affiliations and email addresses.
