Re: campus gardens
Here on the West Coast, I would suggest contacting people at the following
UC campuses. Contacts at each program will be able to fill in the gaps and
give you even more ideas, I am sure. The trick is finding these folks
inside during this busy season!
1. UC Santa Cruz Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS)
CASFS has an incredible program, based on a certified organic farm (they
train 35+ students each year in a six-month apprenticeship in Ecological
Horticulture), and it includes a Community Supported Agriculture project as
well as a Market Cart at the entrance to campus (flowers, fruit, veggies).
2. UC Davis has a Student Experimental Farm as well as a Children's Garden
Program. The link below is to the Children's Garden, but also has links to
the Market Garden (which supplies produce to a campus coffee house) and
Community Supported Agriculture projects.
