Nature, Technology, Society class project leads to campus garden

Senior Matt Gregory took Professor Grantham's Nature Technology Society course in the fall of 2008. His group's final project was fully realized as a campus garden. The Philosophy Blog interviewed Matt below about his efforts.

"We were basically learning about the ethical dilemma revolving around genetically modified crops - essentially asking questions about whether or not we want our food to become so industrialized. Our group wanted to explore efforts being made to 'slow down' the 'green revolution' and emphasize quality of food and quality and importance of the practices being implemented. Within urban gardening there are also major benefits to local communities!" Matt said.
