IUPUI Sustainable Urban Gardens

Through IUPUI's Office of Sustainability, my fellow Urban Garden Associates and I worked in the on-campus urban gardens to grow produce for campus dining services. The three of us collaborated to maintain the gardens as well as plan volunteer events and teach them about our work. During the past growing season, we grew over 350 pounds of produce and hosted 30+ volunteers in the garden's first year of operation since before the pandemic began in early 2020.
