Everything will change. A Ministry of WorldVenture.
Dr. George A. Damoff has been a professor of biology, environmental science and ecology, and a laboratory instructor of soil science in public and private institutions of higher education since 1987. Currently, he is an adjunct graduate faculty member in the Division of Environmental Science at Stephen F. Austin State University, Nacogdoches, Texas. His research on earthworms has been conducted in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas, and Colorado.
|A “lifelong, avid gardener,” George has expertise in earthworm identification and is interested in both pure and applied science related to earthworm ecology. In the past year he has been involved in a variety of research projects related to earthworms and soil. These include: the identification of earthworm species for a prairie restoration project in north-central Kansas, and a collaborative project examining environmental trace contaminants in earthworm tissue at Hornsby Bend Biosolids Management Plant in Austin, TX, with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, USDA, USGS and the City of Austin.|
He has co-authored several journal articles on earthworm species and the soils in which they are found. George has recently presented a workshops on vermicomposting and composting for the Texas Master Gardeners program and has helped launch the Marshall Community Garden.
Since completing his Ph.D. in Forestry in Dec. 2008, George has sought to use his expertise to advance God’s Kingdom. He was invited by WorldVenture missionaries to work with farmers and natural resource managers in north Côte d'Ivoire in June of that year. During his month-long visit there, he worked with farmers, co-ops, and natural resources managers planting crops and sharing his gardening knowledge. Journey Corps “greatly interests” him for this reason!
