JFRC Student Organic Garden

The Spring 2012 Semester students decided to leave their legacy at the JFRC in the form of a living, breathing organic garden, where tomatoes, zucchini, green peppers, eggplant and an abundance of fresh produce grow each season.

The garden provides students with a break from studies and the opportunity to get out in their Roman backyard to enjoy the fresh air.

Student Organic Garden – Winter Vegetable Harvest & Spring Planting

Fresh piselli from the harvest!

Spring 2014 Students, led by Melaney Dunne, Sam Crowley, Tom Dyke and with the support of SLAs Mitch, Jenny and the Student Life team, resurrected the Student Organic Garden over these past weeks to celebrate Earth month and most importantly to demonstrate JFRC student commitment to sustainable initiatives.  The Spring 2012 class decided to leave behind a green legacy: a sustainable organic garden, which over the semesters, has suffered from extreme weather.  This semester’s dedicated students have breathed some life back into this garden.  It continues to be a campus-wide effort with special support from our gardeners and facilities staff lending a much needed hand and special grazie to Mensa for agreeing to prepare and cook the winter vegetables.  These delicious greens were featured during Friday lunch services for all to enjoy.

Stay tuned for more updates this summer on the JFRC Student Organic Garden initiative!
