On August 31, 2011, we invited incoming Master in Environmental Studies (MES) to attend a free BBQ at the Garden. In addition to enjoying roasted corn, portobello mushrooms and sausages, we roasted some potatoes that we harvested directly from the ground. This was a great opportunity for upper-year students to socialize with new students and share their experiences and food-related interests. I think I speak for everyone when I say this was a successful event! Since then, a number of students have returned to volunteer – THANK YOU!
Although Fall has arrived, there are still a number of chores to do around the Garden, and beets, radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers and corn to harvest. Check your e-mail for more information about upcoming work days, or stop by our office in the Health, Nursing and Environmental Studies (HNES) building, room 136C.
