GreenHive Leadership Program

Growing eco-conscious leaders.

The GreenHive Leadership Program is a 10-week paid fellowship for DeKalb County-based college students.

Through weekly training sessions and a final Legacy project, young leaders will get hands-on experience advocating for better landscapes, while working side-by-side with other students to engage the community and local politicians, and gain crucial leadership skills.

The GreenHive Leadership Program builds on the Fruitful Communities initiative and Grower Program by providing a structured format for college-aged leaders to become directly engaged in the ecological work being done here in DeKalb, all while being paid to make DeKalb a greener, more sustainable place.

Agnes Scott GreenHive Leaders proposed a sensory garden walk to be incorporated throughout their campus. Agnes Scott leaders took a particular focus on how including these sensory plants throughout the campus landscape can affect student psychology. This legacy project also focuses on student education and advocacy to ensure long-term sustainability.

Emory GreenHive Leaders proposed a Fruitful Communities mural on an existing campus building. This mural not only beautifies the campus but discusses the importance of land stewardship, local food systems, and community building. Emory Leaders were particularly interested in how this mural project can bring multiple environmental and food justice organizations together to advocate for shifting the paradigm of landscaping.

The Georgia State University GreenHive Leaders proposed policy modifications to the institution's existing Landscape Development Plan. These changes will help provide Productive Urban Landscapes and Green Space throughout their primarily concrete campus. This policy adjustment has been completed with student surveys and analysis of data interpretations, and a documentation video.

“[The GreenHive Leadership Program] was amazing and my whole perspective of climate and ecological change has been shifted.”
