Student Farm To Host ‘Garden Grow-How’ Event March 21

Penn State’s Student Farm plans to collaborate with the Penn State Community Garden, LEAD Society, Media Commons, and Student Farm Club to host a “Garden Grow-How” event from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, March 21 in the HUB’s Heritage Hall.

Grab your gardening gloves and get ready to think green. This event will feature several different stations to help sharpen your knowledge on a variety of topics such live worms, succulent planting, seed swapping, and more. Some stations will be geared toward kids, too.

Attendees will have the opportunity to win garden supplies ranging from perennial fruit bushes to gardening books. They’ll also get to enter a raffle full of plant-themed prizes.

“We’re excited to invite the campus and community to explore gardening methods that they may have never seen before,” said Leslie Pillen, associate director of farm and food systems who’s organizing the event. “Growing your own food can transform your eating habits and relationship with nature, and we hope to demonstrate just how accessible and fun it can be.”

The event is open to all students as well as community members who are willing to get their hands a little dirty. Paid parking will be available to all participants in the HUB Parking Deck. 

More information about the Grow-How can be found online.
