    About Cornell College

    Located in Mount Vernon, Iowa, Cornell was the first college west of the Mississippi to grant women the same rights and privileges as men, and, in 1858, to award a degree to a woman.

    In 1978 Cornell faculty adopted the One Course At A Time curriculum, transforming the way teaching and learning happen at Cornell. With the 1996 publication of Loren Pope’s Colleges That Change Lives, Cornell’s life-changing education was formally recognized. Cornell continues to be recognized with each new edition.

    Celebrating Crop Diversity: Connecting Agriculture, Public Gardens, and Science

    Plenary Talk with Gary Nabhan

    Thursday April 4th

    During eras of political, economic, and environmental stress, humanity turns to consider a broader range of options than typically employed during “business as usual.” This is one of those times - when agriculture needs to re-diversify to add resilience to the food system that we depend on for survival. A wide array of activities led by a broad diversity of land managers, botanists, indigenous harvesters, farmers, and many others are illuminating the way forward. This is “conservation you can taste,” where what is saved and restored is also savored. Gary Paul Nabhan, W.K. Kellogg endowed chair in borderlands food and water security at the University of Arizona, will take us on a journey of discovery around North America to celebrate efforts that are bringing people together to renew and care for the foods they enjoy.

    Agave Heritage Festival

    Agave Heritage Festival began in 2008 as Agave Fest, a Cinco de Mayo celebration featuring tequila tastings and a tequila “Iron Bar Chef” competition at the historic Hotel Congress. As the festival grew in the following years, the number of different agave spirits featured at the event more than doubled, and food specials were elevated from cheap eats to regionally focused culinary treats.

    By 2015 — the same year that Tucson was the first U.S. city to receive the UNESCO City of Gastronomy designation — Agave Fest had gone from a tequila-lover’s Cinco de Mayo celebration to an event rooted in the historical and cultural significance of the agave plant. With seminars, a fundraising Agave Dinner, tastings of spirits unavailable in the United States, and a cultural and historical art exhibit, Agave Fest had begun to realize its true potential.

    The agave plant’s inextricable role in the culture and history of the Arizona-Mexico borderlands region became a central focus of Agave Fest, leading to the creation of Agave Heritage Week in 2016 and the expansion into Agave Heritage Festival in 2017.

    Today, Agave Heritage Festival is a city-wide, ten-day destination event that spotlights the sustainability of the southwest region through the lens of the agave plant. Agave Heritage Festival celebrates the unique importance of the agave plant and the borderlands culture with seminars, trade shows, and world-class culinary events.
