After years of discussions your Graduate Students’ Association has signed a deal with Carleton to make a community garden on campus.

The garden will be located in a small field North of the Leeds residence next to parking lot 6. It will feature raised beds for planting, and will allow students to grow food right on campus. Grad students will be given preference for spaces, and applications will be open to all members of the Carleton community. A dedicated bed will grow food for the GSA/CUSA Food Center.

“We are extremely pleased the University has decided to work with grad students on this project. Grad students have wanted a way to garden and connect with nature on campus for a long time” said GSA President Kelly Black.

Check the Grad Bulletin soon for ways you can get involved in building the garden, and making things grow.
