Where Did Your Food Come From?

Ten WJU students  have chosen to spend their Spring Break participating in the Food Justice Immersion Trip. They enjoyed exploring backyard gardening, urban farming and industrial agriculture in the Ohio  Valley. These students experienced milking cows, building compost piles and planting seeds. They learned the importance of nutrient cycling by planting gardens in vacant lots in neighborhoods in Wheeling, WV. The Food Justice Immersion Trip has taught students about the problems and opportunities of our food system in the 21st century. Community gardening, food co-ops, faith-based food initiatives, regional food hubs are some healthy alternatives to supermarket food that cost a fortune. “This experience was not only fun but informative as well. I am glad that through this trip I have made an impact in the Wheeling community.” says Rachel Enders ‘16.
