Virginia Tech Dining Services has its own garden! Beginning in 2009 through a partnership with the College of Agriculture and Life Science’s Kentland Farm, Dining Services began growing local, sustainably managed herbs. This season, the garden will be expanded to a whole acre of sustainably produced vegetables. You can find these products in Fall 2010 at the Farms & Fields Project at Owens Food Court and in other Dining Centers across campus. It doesn’t get much more local than that!
Students: we need your help to develop a name for the garden plot and promote this exciting project. Please enter your ideas and contact information at the link below by Friday, April 23, 2010 (one entry per student, please):
