Day 1: Block B is Under Way

Block A officially ended and after a long Memorial Day weekend, we’re back for Block B! We have two great classes for this session: PLAC 5500: Farmers’ Markets and Applied Food Systems Research led by Tanya Denckla Cobb and Paul Freedman, and EVSC 4559: Food and Nutrition in a Changing World with Manuel Lerdau. You can find out more about them here. We have an awesome group of 25 students, some of which are returning after Block A for an action packed six credits in four short weeks.

Exploring Morven on a walking tour

After introductions in the Meeting Barn, everyone headed outside for a walking tour of the property. Since it was gorgeous today (not drizzly like the first day of Block A), we extended the tour to the Morven Kitchen Garden. The garden’s looking green and luscious!

Tanya led a fun icebreaker back in the Meeting Barn where students came up with their own food spirits and food nicknames – we’ll see if those stick. After lunch, the two classes split up for the first class sessions. Block B is officially under way! Be sure to check back and see what’s happening out here at the Morven Summer Institute.
