GULFS November Outreach
November 1, 2017
With the growing season coming to a close, Assistant Policy Director Devon Hamilton has kept busy with continuing outreach and youth education around food system issues included in the scope of the GULFS program curriculum. For the past few weeks, he has been volunteering with Badger Rock Middle School every Tuesday and Friday, learning about the school’s curriculum, style of learning, and daily operations in their garden class. Earlier this month, he spoke with Professor Kendra Alexander’s class at UW-Madison’s School of Human Ecology to discuss food systems issues and how to appropriately engage with communities of color from a point of privilege, such as the University. He was also invited by Assistant Dean of CALS Tom Browne to speak with Donale Richards to a group of high schoolers from Verona about our food systems work. We had a constructive conversation with them about our collaborative efforts we’ve engaged in, including GULFS involvement with the PEOPLE Program and the Mellowhood Foundation this past Summer.
