Fall 2016 at The Edible Garden & Bee Hives
Biology students inspect bee hives.
Biology students harvest fall vegetables and pick late fall strawberries and herbs.
The season began on a high note as the new edible garden and bee hive curriculum was featured at the International Congress of Dietetics in Granada, Spain. The busy season included several student visits to the edible garden & bee hives by our biology students who found a thriving garden and productive hives. Each visit students explored one of six experiential lessons that comprise the curriculum which Dr. Jackie Ehlert and Dr. Yan Xu delivered as part of their preliminary research comparing the eating behaviors of participants and non-participants.
