Philosophy of Nature

On April 14, 2011, Saint Xavier University's "Philosophy of Nature" course, taught by Dr. Molly Sturdevant, toured Growing Home's Wood Street Garden, an organic vegetable grower here on the south side of Chicago. Professors David Elmendorf (Biology) and Forrest Perry (Philosophy) also attended.

Students were pursuing an interdisciplinary reflection on the value of organic food production. The tour was led by the garden's interns, and their Jobs Training Coordinator, Beth Gunzel.
