"Food for Thought" workshops announced

Feb. 23, 2012 — The University of Delaware Food and Gardening Policy Committee (FGPC) will host "Food for Thought," its spring 2012 workshop and lecture series on gardening, food and health.

The Food and Gardening Policy Committee is an all-volunteer student group on the UD campus that provides classroom and hands-on experience to anyone that would like to learn how to grow food in a sustainable manner.

The committee operates a garden in conjunction with the English Language Institute at the ELI building at 189 W. Main St. in Newark. Initial funding for the garden project was provided by the generous donations of the University community through the UD Sustainability Fund.

All workshops and lectures will be held on the UD campus and are free and open to the public. See the full article for topics, times and locations.
