Fields of Devotion Campus Film Debut
Event Format: In-Person
When climate change-induced diseases wipe out farmers’ fields, growers turn to scientists for help. Fields of Devotion, a 30-minute science-in-action film, follows the decade-long partnership between Rutgers plant biologists, the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES), and New Jersey small family farmers as they work together to develop resilient basil crops.
A story of hard work, collaboration, and innovative solutions for a rapidly changing world, Fields of Devotion is told from the perspective of local farmers and plant biology graduate students who together help realize Rutgers’ land grant mission of community engagement and academic excellence.
