Students from the Sustainability Studies program and club maintain a lovely garden right next to Stuyvesant Hall, which houses first-year students.
A student manager of the garden, Joe (pictured above in the green shirt,) gave tours of the garden to a few students, faculty and staff members earlier this morning. This shaded, green space features tomatoes, zucchini, peppers and other plants, along with a giant sunflower (the stem can be seen on the left side of the photo above!) The campus community is welcome to pick vegetables and herbs as they please - the rest is donated to local food pantries. Program director Bob Brinkmann shared 10 fun facts about the garden on his blog.
