UVa’s Hereford College has started a mini-farm, Tasha Kates reported in yesterday’s Daily Progress. The 800 square foot garden, maintained by members of the university community, fits in with a recent course on alternative food production. Now students are working on creating another garden, this one a half-acre in size, with some of the resulting food passed along to area soup kitchens.
One thought on “Hereford College’s Mini-Farm”
I’d be interested in knowing if these students ever visited the community gardens at Copely Hill and University Gardens (both UVa family housing, mostly graduate students and their families). These gardens have been thriving for many years and perhaps these families could offer some practical advice for how they’ve managed to be quietly sustainable all these years.
