Course Description

L3 Horticulture & Sustainability 

This course can be focused around Sustainability or Horticulture (or a mixture of both) depending on student interest.  

Sustainability offers three internal assessments with a total of 15 credits meaning that UE can be achieved in the sustainability learning area.  The standards include: creating a strategy for sustainability, taking a personal action based on the strategy, and the evaluation of a marine reserve (a field trip is required for this standard, either to Goat Island or Long Bay-Okura Marine Reserve).  The first two standards can be in a context of the students choosing.

Horticulture offers two internal assessments, a research project, again in a context chosen by the student, and an extended investigation.
