The Greens Garden Committee founded the Greens Community Garden (located in the plot between Haffner Dining Hall and the Wyndham parking lot) during the spring of 2010. Since then, we have been able to successfully grow a variety of fruits & vegetables such as lettuce, onions, spinach, corn, pumpkin, bok choy, squash, watermelon, turnips, celery, tomatoes, blueberries, & herbs. Much of our produce is used in dishes in Haffner dining hall and in Batten House, and we encourage those who use our produce to be involved with the planning and maintenance of the garden. We also organize gardening events on campus, as well as coordinate with other clubs on campus to host events and to share resources.
Our activities were recently recognized by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, which awarded us its 2011 Community Greening Award. Currently, the garden committee is focusing on strengthening its educational component, as well as networking with external groups and individuals.
