Bright-eyed and ready to learn, the students of Block B of the Morven Summer Institute arrived today to start the second “semester” of MSI. The cicadas out here could not be louder and students were treated to their intense chorus as they walked all around the grounds at Morven to get a sense of the lay of the land. Among other stops along the way, was the kitchen garden, formal gardens, and even the lovely (and fully in bloom) rose garden.
This second block will feature two courses: “Farmers’ Markets and Applied Food Systems Research,” co-taught by Tanya Denckla Cobb and Paul Freedman, as well as “Food and Nutrition in a Changing World,” taught by Manuel Lerdau.
On the tour around the Morven grounds, Professor Lerdau caught this gem of a picture…
Stay tuned for more fun adventures to come during Block B of the Morven Summer Institute!
