volunteer on student farm: get tons of free veggies

September 9, 2009

I went this morning to help on the new student farm located south of campus. The farm’s manager, Zack, showed me and a group of volunteers around as we helped out harvesting.

The produce from the farm is sold to University Dining Services and goes to feed kids living in the dorms. The student farm is part sponsored by the dining halls and part by the College of ACES.  This is the FIRST year planting crops and they’re supplying a lot of food to the dorms.

We picked mostly squashes but some basil and parsley too.

The best part is that after a few hours of work, they let you take home as many veggies as you can carry! My roommates will be happy when they get home.
