Slow Food UW Café

Enjoy fresh and locally sourced food at Allen Centennial Garden, prepped by Slow Food UW, a student organization that helps promote “good, clean and fair food for all.” They depend on both the campus and Madison communities to create dialogues and bridge cultural differences by using food as a universal experience. They work hard to make local, community-conscious foods accessible and delicious!

Family Gardening Day

UW Family Gardening Day gives everyone a chance to see and explore some of the splendid facilities for teaching, research and outreach in the plant sciences as well as to tour the beautiful gardens on campus.

Masterclass: Beekeeping
Saturday, May 26, 1–4:30pm; $15 public | Free for FACG members
Instructors: Dr. David Hogg and Will Olson
It’s truly a delight to see honeybees whizzing around a garden, busily pollinating everything from vegetable crops to fruit trees. And at the end of the summer, a delicious reward in honey and multifunctional beeswax! Explore beekeeping as you dive into the Garden’s two beehives, a traditional Langstroth hive, and a newer design, the FlowHive. Bee suits provided.
