RE: university gardens
The famous garden/gardening program that I know of ( outside of your world
famous Eagle Heights community Garden) is the Agroecology program at the
University of California Santa Cruz that was founded by Alan Chadwick.
I have never been there nor do I know how it currently is operated. Great
luck. When your paper is finished, maybe I can use the information that
you've accumulated to convince college near me to have community gardens.
