Winona State University planted another dimension of learning when it launched the Sustainable, Edible, Education Discovery, or SEED, garden last spring.
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.
The first crops were planted last spring, and included broccoli, Brussels sprouts, corn, sunflowers, beans, tomatoes, carrots, beets, onions, lettuce, kale, zucchini and squash. The first harvest is anticipated this fall.
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......
