“I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow and have the opportunity to be a part of a network of individuals who are also passionate about making a positive change on their campus and in their community. The Millennium Fellowship allows me to do what I love while also learning from others!”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Brandeis Rooftop Farm: Sustainable Agriculture in Your Community project goal is to strengthen the relationship between the Brandeis and greater Waltham community. Through this project Benée Hershon hope to provide hands on skills in farming to Waltham community members while also providing farm fresh and healthy produce to the community. The project will immerse both students and community members in topics of food justice and sustainable agriculture. By the end of the semester Benée hopes to lead multiple workshops and one large community event. She also hopes to develop a plan for the future of the farm and a plan to provide produce directly to the community.
