In September, the campus farmers market added a “learning garden table,” providing visitors with information on food-related subjects. The first yummy lesson: Chef Rosa Galeno and members of the Wheaton Greenhouse Group demonstrated how to preserve basil and dry red peppers. Also, members of the Asian American Coalition presented a hands-on lesson in how to make a Korean favorite—kimbap. Delicious.
The work at Wheaton doesn’t stop when the semester ends in May. Many students (and even recent graduates) continue their scholarly pursuits on campus. These students spent summer vacation tackling innovative computer science research with their professors, Tom Armstrong, Michael Drout, Mark LeBlanc and Michael Kahn.
