Jessica Kemper, coordinator of the U’s Edible
Campus Gardens, shows off produce from this
season’s abundant harvest at their garden east
of Pioneer Memorial Theatre. Kemper helps
organize more than 75 student volunteers, who
work shifts year round composting, trellising,
weeding, planting, and harvesting at both the
Pioneer Garden and their plot by the Sill Center.
Come fall, there is enough produce to donate
to the Feed U Pantry, share with volunteers, and
sell at the U’s Farmers Market, which takes place
Thursdays just west of the Union Building from
mid-August to early October.
Campus Scene: Good to Grow The U’s Edible Campus Gardens volunteers grow produce and flowers at plots near Pioneer Memorial Theatre and the Sill Center.
