Rooftops aren’t just for runoff anymore. But even more than a green roof, the Wabash building has a garden that’s produced more than 22 lbs of vegetables the first month this year. Herbs and veggies grown here are also served here at the Dining Center.
Visible from the 5th floor Fitness Center, thyme, sage, chive and oregano herbs are growing in abundance. Greens such as broccoli sprouts, arugula, and baby spinach and beans and peas have already been harvested. Other veggies which have been seeded but are not yet ready to pick: lettuce, kale, endive, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, green onions, cucumbers, okra, squash, cucumbers and watermelon.
Fresh produce from the garden is tastier and more healthful than those shipped from across the country. Look for recipes including these fresh-from-the-rooftop veggies at the Dining Center soon!
