Day 2: Heat Wave!

Phewie, we’re feeling the beginning of the oncoming heat wave out here at Morven but, luckily, we have some very pleasant (and air-conditioned) facilities to enjoy classes in! The Farmers’ Market course meets in the meeting barn, which was the old carriage house, when there were still derby-winning race horses out here at Morven. The Food and Nutrition course meets in the stone house, which was built in the 1920s.

Today the Farmers’ Market class had special guest, Carla Jones, come and speak about her work in the areas of food systems, food justice, and farmers’ market research. Carla works as a program associate for the Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) Cities & Towns Campaign at the Institute for Public Health Innovation.

At lunch, a few of us (including Professor Freedman and MSI coordinator, Emily Sydnor) decided to soak up some Vitamin D while playing a little Ultimate Frisbee outside in the hot sun…
