As mentioned in the previous blog post, a group of students at Haverford (code-named the “Haverford Garden Initiative”) will be gardening this spring. Our mission (and I say “our” because I am indeed one of those excited gardeners) is to increase interest in gardening on campus and to introduce people to some of the food-related social causes…
Over the past two weeks, we have made serious progress on the garden front. Last weekend, we scoured our newly-roto-tilled garden plots for grass-clods and rocks hopeful of out-competing our petite seedlings. Throughout the week, we continued to water those seedlings in the campus greenhouse and delighted in their spectacular growth. And, this past weekend, we (1) transplanted the seedlings to give them breathing room and (2) planted the cold-season vegetables outside — specifically radishes, carrots, and spinach. In other words, our garden dream is becoming a reality!
