On February 21st, the Cook Chapter hosted a dinner with Jack Rabin, the Associate Director and Director of Farm Programs for the NJ Agricultural Experiment Station. Professor Rabin, who teaches a course on sustainable agriculture for Rutgers Students, talked to the 15 chapter members that attended about the history of land grant colleges, the agricultural experiment stations, and the cooperative extension service. Members also had a discussion with Professor Rabin about sustainability in farming in New Jersey and throughout the world. The dinner was informative and enjoyable for all who attended.
