Cal State Fullerton’s Arboretum Grows Next Gen Farmers

Mitsue Escobar is a research assistant on the arboretum’s “farm.” She’s part of a group called U-ACRE, which is Fullerton’s community-based, hands-on research experience.

Escobar, like many of her peers, came to the university without any exposure to agricultural sciences. But after taking an anthropology class and working on the farm, she fell in love with the science of food.
