A vegetable garden, living laboratory, hidden oasis, and dedication to environmental stewardship and social responsibility, right on the fourth floor patio of Regents. Every Sunday, Hoyas plant and pick brussel sprouts, peppers, peas, beets, radishes, squash – whatever they’re growing in season – and carry the produce to the university’s food pantry, Hoya Hub, a resource for community members experiencing food insecurity. With programming like yoga and meditation, the garden invites the community to learn about alternatives to conventional food systems that have negative environmental and social impacts. The Hoya Harvest Garden is more than a garden- it’s all about sustainable living, learning by doing, and sharing the fruits (and veggies!) of our labor with those who need it most in our community.
