Last summer I began an independent study project for my Global Perspectives on Sustainability minor about health, food and culture. It involved doing fieldwork with the Ecology Research Center (ERC) and the Myaamia Center, where we grew white-flowering corn. I spent many hours at the ERC from the start to finish of the growing process, as well as at my computer and various other places learning about how my ancestors grew and harvested corn.
