Homes in the Heart of Virginia: Food for Thought - Longwood University and the Town of Farmville

Food for Thought - Longwood University and the Town of Farmville

Student writers and photographers from Longwood University colloborated to bring this great project to life and an exhibition was held at the Farmville Farmer's Market last week. The stories and photographs focused on issues of hunger and nutrition in the local area and provided a wonderful example of "Town and Gown" working together.

Many local Farmville organizations and individuals supported the project helping to make it a reality. The works were displayed at the Farmer's Market over the course of two days where everyone was welcome to come along and view.

An opening reception was held the first evening allowing members of the public to meet and talk with the students and learn more about their work. Farmville is lucky to have Longwood University in the community and Hampden-Sydney College is just outside of town. These academic institutions bring opportunities that many small towns just don't have. This gives Farmville a unique mix of a small town feel but expanded cultural and learning opportunities.
