ALEXANDRIA CAMPUS Green Club visits the National Geographic Museum
On Saturday, November 15th Dr. Christine Bozarth and NOVA students visited the National Geographic Museum in an event sponsored by the Green Club, Alexandria campus’ student environmental group. Students learned about our global food production system at the new exhibit, “FOOD: Our Global Kitchen”.
This exhibit explores the complex and intricate food system, which brings our food from the farm to the table. The tour encompasses the entire process from growing, transporting, cooking, eating, tasting and celebrating this key life essential. The exhibition further illuminated how our world eats and explores the future of food.
The museum offered the students an opportunity to taste seasonal treats in the working kitchen, cook a virtual meal, see rare artifacts and peek into the dining rooms of famous figures throughout history. Visitors also examined the intersection of food, nature, culture, health, traditions and history.
The Green Club meets every Wednesday (except 11/26) at 1:30pm in Bisdorf AA-362-B.
Please come and join us.
