A note from the student interns:
Join us—the ACC student interns—and select community partners as we pass on the perennial culinary knowledge and foodways of different berries, trees, plants, and resources to you and your kitchen. You will experience new foods, learn their background and properties, and find that some of these new and exciting foods are growing right in your own backyard!
ACC stands for Agriculture Conservation Corps, and it’s a program that focuses on sustaining natural resources, preserving the land that is sacred to the Piscataway people, and exploring academic opportunities and careers. We’re a community of students working towards using natural resources for everyday purposes, such as cooking, medicine, and pleasing aesthetics.
Leave behind the daily grind and become one with nature. Come and enjoy our natural garden and forest-made meal!
