CNDLS Graduate Associate Leslie Cochrane shares this news from the Engelhard Project:
A project started by Bre Donald (NHS ’12) and Melissa Gadsden (NHS ’12) in their Engelhard course is blossoming into an on-campus farmers’ market, The Hoya recently reported. The students first came up with the idea in Faculty Fellow Joan Riley’s class on Health Promotion. Riley believes that their “work improves the quality of life on campus,” as the market will raise awareness of healthy eating. The two students have received a ReImagine Georgetown grant toward the project, as well as support from the campus and community.
The event, featuring cooking demonstrations and fresh produce from local vendors, will be held in Healy circle on April 27 from 2 pm to 6 pm. For more information, read the full article here. To learn more about the Engelhard Project, visit this site.
