Workshops Focused on Food
CRAFT is an outgrowth of Chatham University’s longstanding engagement with sustainable practices and ideas. From the Falk School of Sustainability and Environment to the Food Studies program, CRAFT builds on education, outreach, and training to support products and knowledge building in our region.
