Summer Planting at New Campus Community Garden

The new Campus Community Garden has recently undergone its first planting, receiving summer crops which will continue growing into the fall semester.

After weeks of difficult manual labor, the UH Green team, with help from UH Grounds and consulting from Urban Harvest, has created a fifteen bed, brick-lined, irrigated garden.

The garden is located in Cougar Woods at the corner of Wheeler and Cullen, in an area which was researched and determined optimal for crop growth by its exposure to rain and sunlight.

The Garden will be primarily comprised of vegetables and herbs which may be used in campus recipes. Some of the crops which were planted Monday include squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, and various herbs.

Many came out to celebrate and to help with this project, including Executive VP Carl Carlucci, Regent Nandita Berry, President Renu Khator, and even new students interested in green initiatives on campus.

Participants received stickers with the proud phrase, “Today I planted a seed for a brighter UH tomorrow”, showing the real spirit of the occasion.

The garden is sure to be a great asset and joy to the campus, and many participants expressed excitement for the future crops it will yield.
