This semester the students planted, tended and then harvested a “victory garden” as part of Lund’s English 215 class, titled “9/11: Loss and Redemption.” The class counts as credit toward the Historical and Contemporary Insights pillar in Longwood’s Civitae core curriculum.
I thought I could put in place something that is a gesture to the veteran community and also educates my students about civilian involvement during the world wars. I think they should know something about the cost of what the military does.
Dr. Michael Lund, professor emeritus in the English and modern languages department
