Campus food and student gardening guides now available

The Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS), the Food Systems Working Group, and the Student Environmental Center have worked together to produce the first UCSC Student Garden Guide.

The project, coordinated by Environmental Studies student Tyler Pitts, is a 16-page guide to the many gardening and farming opportunities for students at UC Santa Cruz, and includes information on internships, classes, events, and student groups involved in gardening and food systems. Free copies are available on campus and online.

CASFS has also produced the fifth edition of the Campus Food Guide that offers a wealth of information on many food-related issues, including Dining Services' latest "green" dining options, updates on efforts to make the campus food system more sustainable, and a list of courses, internships, and volunteer opportunities for students interested in farming, gardening, and social aspects of the food system.

The 40-page publication is free and is available at public spaces throughout campus, including libraries, coffee shops, and college offices. You can also request a copy by calling 459-3248, or find a pdf version on the web.
