About Karen Snider
Karen is the Director of the Sustainable Development Garden, CSU’s organic student-run garden. Her fellowship will highlight local resource conservation and individual empowerment through urban community building. Projects such as a tool co-op and lending library, a free store, and a community garden will encourage participants to create more self-reliant and sustainable lifestyles within their city. She will provide a localized model for urban conservation through sustainable community development, as well as document a budding grassroots movement occurring within multiple cities that she will share with the global conservation community via a documentary film on collaborative living in urban spaces.
