Title: Grow Appalachia Raised Bed Project
Dates Showing: May 2015 through until the growing season ends, about October 15
Location: South side of Stephenson Hall, just outside the Longwall Gallery
Description: Grow Appalachia shows just how much food can be produced in a 3ft. by 7ft. by raised bed garden. The Grow Appalachia staff are planting a sequence of crops. The first crop: mesclun greens.
Curators: The Grow Appalachia staff and student Shadia Prater
It is possible to grow a great deal of food in a small space with proper variety selection and management. We will also plant cold hardy varieties in the fall with the goal being the production of something tasty and nutritious nine months a year.
Grow Appalachia is working to make Appalachia healthier and more food secure one season, one garden, one family at a time.
