RU Wabash Rooftop Garden Fall Harvest

RU Rooftop Garden Fall Harvest

On October 16, Garden Group members teamed up for one last harvest on Roosevelt Fall 2015 harvestUniversity’s Wabash Rooftop Garden. We were able to collect 3.5 pounds of produce to send to the Wabash Dining Center! The harvest consisted of Swiss chard, kale, nasturtium, arugula, leeks, carrots, rosemary, and sage.

The rooftop garden has been in full swing this year with the help of many diligent Roosevelt students and staff members throughout the season. Thanks to them and a long summer, we were able to exceed the amount produce harvested from the previous season by 4.5 pounds, with a total of 37.5 pounds!

Though winter is creeping up on us quickly, there is still some work to be done in the garden. This includes pulling weeds, removing dead plants, and taking down the trellis before it gets too cold outside. If you would like to contribute to the garden and help prep for winter it would be gladly appreciated! As for other aspects of the garden, you can always get involved with designing the garden, profiling plants, or starting seeds indoors. We will also give class or group tours upon request!
