Winona State University planted another dimension of learning when it launched the Sustainable, Edible, Education Discovery (SEED) garden in spring 2017. Funded by the university’s new Green Fee, the garden is intended to give WSU students more access to locally-grown food and provide donations to local organizations and WSU’s new on-campus food shelf, the Warrior Cupboard. In addition to building community, the garden is also intended to support educational initiatives like elementary education students learning how to plant gardens at their own schools to math and statistics students using the garden to study variables on plant growth. The project is accepting donations of tools (old or new), gloves, seed packets, old buckets or containers, wheelbarrows, soil and other gardening supplies. Volunteers are also needed.
