A surprising experience at an "urban farm"
At Chestnut Hill College, a Spring semester English class is blogging about their experiences with all things related to food.
Throughout most of my research project, I have came across the same problem constantly. Whenever I typed into Ebsco-host (a search engine deigned for students' research) "Food Insecurity in Africa", many times South Africa popped up. This has become a problem because more people who are food insecure happen to live in developing countries. For those who don't know, South Africa is a well developed country that has been settled by the English and Dutch for hundreds of years.
My name is Meriel and I'm a freshman at Chestnut Hill College. I major in psychology and minor in philosophy. Eventually, I want to work with children and families in a clinical setting. I chose Chestnut Hill because from the second I set foot on campus it felt like a second home (plus we have puppies).
I really love to read, travel, and knit. I've been to the UK, Jamaica, Texas, Nevada, and California. I hope to study abroad in Spain my junior year. I look forward to using the blog a lot!
Hi my name is Cynthia Brain and I am currently a freshman at Chestnut Hill! I love listening to indie music and is a hippie at heart. I am a psychology and global affairs major and so far I have enjoyed every minute of all of my classes here. I decided to be a psychology major because I have always loved helping and listening to others around me, and I hope to influence someone's life in a positive way. I decided to double major in global affairs after I went to Ghana, located in western Africa, this past summer.

My name is Susanna Wise and I am a first year student at Chestnut Hill College. I am an undeclared student with a passion for animals, adventure, and the great outdoors. In my free time I like to listen to music and take long walks in nature. I also enjoy finding Do-It-Yourself crafts on Pinterest to decorate my room with. One of my dreams is to buy my own brick-walled studio where I can open my own florist shop and wear a cute dress and apron every day.
My name is Diamante Cherry, but I prefer Dia. My topic of interest is school lunches and how it affect children in the United States, mainly Philadelphia, PA. Al though, I am Undeclared now, I was an education major before. Children are still and area of focus for me and I believe one of the most important aspects of a student is what they eat at a place where they spend a third of their day five days a week.
