COMMMUNITY GARDEN PLOTS
NATURAL SCIENCE SEMINAR RESEARCH PAPER
Dr. Han is a professor in the Global Studies Department. He has had a garden plot for 8 years, and insists that he must have a garden wherever he lives. Dr. Han plants a variety of things including: Chinese garlic chives, scallions, tomatoes, potatoes, Chinese cabbage, corn, soybeans, and ginger. What is most appealing about the Community Garden to Dr. Han is the community aspect. "Having a plot here allows me to meet people, students, my neighbors, and my community. I get to share ideas and healthy organic produce!"
Shaun and Natasha have been part of the Community Garden Since 2005. They went into the Community Garden with some gardening experience and since have learned much. Their advice to perspective CG members is, "At times the garden takes much effort and hard work and at other times you sit back and watch it grow. Maintence is the key. There is nothing more rewarding than harvesting produce you grew and cooking a meal that completly came from your very own garden." During the summer of 2008 Shaun and Natasha were asked to become the Community Garden Managers. They accepted and since have said, "The experience is new to us and has been fun!"
