The WID community gathers daily at 3 p.m. to take a break, caffeinate and converse. Buzz Tea @ 3 is a monthly series that gathers perspectives on different topics focused on ideas and research. The Institute’s Twitter followers can also chime in by replying to @WIDiscovery, posting on its Facebook page or emailing us.
Our upcoming Agricultural Innovation Prize competition focuses on ideas and solutions in global food systems. We want to know how your relationship with food has evolved.

“The more I learn about food production, the more grateful I am for a vegetable garden.”
“I think tomatoes are pretty OK now.”
