Voorhees Public FellowsDuring the 2011 Fall Semester, six Ralph W. Voorhees Public Service Fellows, Chike Achebe, Anita Kambhampati, Harini N. Kidambi, Ronit Leib, Katherine Nosker, and Alexandra Tereshonkova, worked with Elijah’s Promise to research the potential to develop urban agriculture in New Brunswick and create an urban agriculture plan for the city. Students explored the potential to grow and process food in the city, assessed the local market to purchase locally grown food, and considered how urban agriculture can enhance economic development opportunities by identifying models for growing and processing food that are linked to job training, education, and entrepreneurial business development. Students produced a report and implementation plan that includes examples from other cities.
