Kitty is already involved in a big way in sustainable agriculture, food systems, and food justice. She applied to just four schools: UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, UC Berkeley and U Vermont.
Got into all four and even was awarded the highest level of scholarship at Berkeley. So, where to go?
We visited UC Berkeley and she found it much more interesting than she anticipated.
We visited UC Davis with Steve and Imani Latif (Imani is also trying to decide about schools).
She talked to the student farm people
As always, she ran into someone she knows, also a food systems person.
We were all impressed with the bikeability of the Davis campus and the city (and by the huge numbers of bikes everywhere)
She asked the Big Head for advice.
UPDATE May 1, 2010: The Big Head apparently recommended Davis! The gal decided that's the place for her.
