The vacant lot at 123 McIver will soon be a hotbed of activity. Or approximately 18 raised beds, to be precise. A campus garden, announced by Chancellor Brady in her State of the Campus address, will be under construction soon. It will be an organic garden, with no use of synthetic chemicals. Work days begin next week. Priority for the limited number of plots will be given to faculty for use with particular classes, which could range from Biology to Religious Studies. Many types of classes and disciplines may be interested. Applications can be picked up starting today.
