Description

Join us on April 15th at Uncommon Ground where Margot Zuckerman,our 2017 Circumnavigator Foundation Scholar will present the results of her around the world research project examining how various local food systems have been developed to foster urban food security. Margot traveled to Uganda, Italy, Hungary, Japan, Singapore, Australia and Argentina during her study. Margot, a lifelong “foodie” and environmentalist, is a senior at Northwestern’s Weinberg School majoring in Environmental Sciences and Economics.
