Terhune Orchards was invited to participate in an all-day gathering on February 17 at Princeton University. “Changing Climate, Changing Appetites” brought together a group of experts to discuss the thorny issues behind how to nourish an exploding global population while protecting the earth and safeguarding its finite resources. The conference — free and open to the public — was mounted by Princeton Studies Food, an umbrella organization at the university that brings together faculty, alumni, students, and staff to address these critical issues.
Reuwai Mount Hanewald moderated a panel on sustainability. Pam Mount — co-founder and co-owner of Terhune Orchards; Lawrence Township council person (and former mayor); past president of the New Jersey Agricultural Society; and a founder of Sustainable Lawrence — was heartened by the student participation.
“What’s most impressive is how much these Food Studies at Princeton activities are student-driven. That, and the bringing together of experts in so many fields, including public planning. Not only is it interesting that this group of people want to get to the facts, but that the university is lending its considerable resources to it.”
