In case your radios weren’t tuned to VPR yesterday, check out VPR’s story about gleaning, featuring Middlebury’s own Corinne Almquist ’09. Corinne is a Compton Mentor Fellow and is spending the year working with food banks in Vermont, trying to get fresh, local produce on the shelves for Vermonters. Not sure what gleaning is? Well, listen to the interview! And to learn more about the Compton Mentor Fellowship, check out their website at http://www.comptonmentorfellowship.org/ . You’ll see a photo of Corinne and Tripp Burwell ’09, another Compton Mentor Fellow who is in Alaska, working to develop stronger connections between native and scientific communities. Thinking about applying? Come to the informational meeting for the Compton on:
