Sometimes we forget that our food has its roots (literally!) in the ground. The truth is that most of us have never hoed potatoes, weeded strawberries, fed pigs or milked a cow. Maybe you couldn't even say what potato plants look like or what cows smell like. Today most food comes from grocery stores and restaurants, not directly from the farmer. The Food Literacy Project wants to remind you that agriculture is at the heart of every meal and tell you what HUDS is doing about that.
Harvard recognizes New England's agricultural heritage by still investing Harvard's University Professors with the right to pasture animals in the Yard. We might not be keeping cows for you, but HUDS does use sustainability as a guiding factor.
