Veggies get picked at one end of campus and passed out at the other

Food doesn’t get more local than this—not on campus anyway. This past Friday, Girard Gorelick, Axel Adams and other members of F.H. King Students for Sustainable Agriculture harvested vegetables from the organization’s garden plot in Eagle Heights Community Gardens in the late morning. Just a couple of hours later, they distributed the bounty for free—including beets, leeks, chard, kale, rutabagas, turnips and a few remaining tomatoes and peppers—to UW students in East Campus Mall through the organization’s “Harvest Handouts” program.
