Donor Highlights: Dean’s Circle Tour

August 1, 2022


We are so thankful for all our donors that generously support our Center. This month, Interim Dean Mechelle Best invited us to hosted the Dean's Circle and provided a tour which included: sensory analysis of tomatoes grown in aquaponics, hydroponics, and geoponics; Chef Avila-inspired recipes from our culinary programming, tastings of Garden Matador Pickled Vegetable Relish (our latest product) and MMC Wellness Hot Tea Blend (grown from our garden); a presentation on the MMC Antioxidant Research comparing Aquaponics, Hydroponics, and Geoponics; and a tour of our Wellness Garden. We are thankful to Barbara and Gary Luboff for their generous donation to help with our garden expansion.
