Spending Spring Break in Russia studying seeds gathered throughout the world, Assistant professor Eric Bishop-von Wettberg was able to experience what no other professor had done before at UVM. Von Wettberg of Plant and Soil Sciences recently visited one of the world’s oldest and largest gene banks, known as the Pavlovsk Experimental Station, located in St. Petersburg, Russia.
This summer, twelve UVM students worked for Vermont food businesses as interns with the Next Generation Food Systems Internship program.
