Thorne Chambers of Richville, with a group of fellow SUNY Oneonta students, helped educate an entire elementary school of children this semester on the basics of environmental sustainability and stewardship.

Through the college's Harvest Share Buddies service learning initiative, biology and sociology students spent time in 12 different classrooms at Riverside Elementary School in Oneonta, teaching children about food, the environment and plant biology.

In their assigned K-5 classrooms, SUNY Oneonta students presented weekly interactive lessons and got to know the children.

Chambers is studying biology at SUNY Oneonta.
