This week: Rub-a-dub-dub, thanks for the grub
Friday, February 24, 2012 UTC|
There's always something brewing in the PopTech community. From the world-changing people, projects, and ideas in our network, a handful of this week's highlights follows.
- Tuberville is an organization dedicated to reducing hunger within our communities by focusing on engaging farmers to set aside a few acres of land to harvest and donate the crops to local food banks. The Tuberville web series, whose first episde was released last week, was inspired by a desire to find an innovative and entertaining approach to raising awareness and grow the Tuberville organization. PopTech has worked with a number of folks on this film crew and we're proud to call them our friends.
- Dr. Pamela Ronald (PopTech 2008), Professor of Plant Pathology and Faculty at the Genome Center at the University of California, Davis spoke to Seed Central, about engineering rice for tolerance to environmental stress and resistance to disease. Seed Central's purpose is to energize the seed industry cluster surrounding UC Davis.
- Food author and activist Michael Pollan (PopTech 2010) dishes on Chipotle, his favorite restaurants and…beer to The Denver Post.
