Will Allen to Receive Honorary Doctorate from Hofstra

Noted urban agriculturalist Will Allen will receive an honorary doctorate from Hofstra University Sunday May 18th at our annual commencement ceremony.  This year, all incoming students read his book, The Good Food Revolution as part of a common reading program we have each year.  Allen visited our campus last fall and dedicated our second student garden.  This summer, two of our Sustainability Studies majors will attend a workshop in Milwaukee at his urban farm.
