Q-FARM Newsletter • Issue 2 • December 2020

Friday, December 11, 2020

Hello from Q-FARM:

As autumn quarter closes, we look forward to winter break. The break will be unusual, but brings a sense of relief and restorative potential. We hope each of you take time to rejuvenate yourself; rest, spend time with loved ones, and enjoy much laughter over the next few weeks.

Reflecting on the accomplishments of Q-FARM students and faculty during the past (very unusual!) quarters brings us tremendous joy. Please continue reading the highlights that we are so proud to share!

If this newsletter sparks an idea or question, please reach out to us at – we'd love to hear from you!

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
