Brandeis Garden Week, a week full of plants and volunteering, is ending today. Brandeis Garden Week is a campus-wide initiative to increase awareness of urban agriculture and garden education.
This past week, there have been indoor garden displays in the Shapiro Campus Center atrium, the Shapiro Science Center lobby, and Goldfarb Library. The displays were a successful hit for students, and they show that even in the cold weather, we can garden inside!
About a week and a half ago, there was a bike tour of Waltham gardens, ending at Waltham Fields Community Farm where there was a bicycle-powered cider press! The event was sponsored by DeisBikes and was a great opportunity for students to enjoy the fall weather and be outside.
Last Wednesday, students went to the Waltham Fields Community Farm to spend the morning working outside in the community.
Today is Brandeis Garden Week’s final event, which is a cooking event with Sodexo cosponsored by HSSP and Brandeis Pluralism Alliance. The event is free for the students who are meal plans and $10 otherwise. If you would like to attend, it is not too late! The event is from 4:30 to 6:00 pm and you can sign up here.
As Brandeis Garden Week is ending, we are reminded not only how important and healthy it is to have locally grown foods, but also how much fun it is!
