Winter cabbage soaks up sunlight at the Learning Garden. “Carrots, beets and leeks, lettuce mix and cabbage is what we can harvest right now … Garlic and parsnips are growing for later in the year” -Diego Llewellyn-Jones.
Lane’s Learning Garden, located at the southwest side of the main campus, operates year-long and is part of the Institute of Sustainable Practices.
