I am thrilled to work so closely with Allison on this important project! Our vision for the future is bold and it's fearless. There is no doubt that creating a living laboratory, closed loop food system will take a lot of work, but we have a committed community of students, staff and faculty ready and able to make our campus and our planet a place where everyone thrives! We've made great strides already in reducing our environmental "foodprint", in reducing food insecurity on campus, growing food on campus, and in bringing diverse communities together to solve problems, this project is a wonderful next effort for our team. Let's do this, UMD!
