This year’s theme for International Education Week is Striving for a Sustainable Future. With sustainable future in mind, gardens are becoming increasingly popular all over US campuses, in people’s homes and in cities!
For example, take a look at a San Francisco’s neighborhood recent re-use of a freeway ramp into an urban farm!
In this spirit, we are excited to offer you a Garden Workshop this coming Friday in SMU’s new campus garden.
Garden experts will be on hand to tell and show you how to prepare your gardens for the winter.
Dress to be outside and get dirty! Bon Appétit will provide hot apple cider and there will be light snacks.
At 2pm, we will gather in the St.Gertrude (dining hall) atrium for a talk, followed by some hands on work in the garden.
NOTE: the IEW poster says 3-5, but we are actually starting at 2pm!
