Evergreen Magazine Spring 2011
Food has been a part of Evergreen’s educational banquet from day one, when faculty member Bob Sluss assigned Georg Borgstrom’s book, The Hungry Planet, to his political ecology students. Today, our students can study it in all its glory, from its microscopic makeup and the way it’s produced, distributed and prepared to why it’s nourishing and how it defines us. And for a number of Evergreen alumni, helping people enjoy good, healthy, sustainable and delicious food is their calling and life’s work.
Whether you’re an omnivore, a locavore, a vegan, a gourmand or any other kind of eater, we hope you enjoy this taste of how Evergreen’s creative individuals are using food to sustain themselves and their communities.
