Jenny Ratdtke Shared about an Urban Agriculture program which partners urban gardens with incarcerated persons to produce hot sauce from locally grown peppers.  She wondered if this might be a project that our KBCC Farm could be involved with.  Glenda suggested that she share this info. with Maya Stansberry later in the semester.

Shannon Caravello announced that she would be offering KBCC’s Urban Agriculture Class in the Spring of 2019 as a writing intensive class.

Shannon also shared that she will be changing her dissertation topic but would still like the focus to be related in some way to Urban Agriculture and if feasible incorporating the KBCC Farm.  Several ideas were discussed by the group.
