Free “garden swap” bins for sharing excess produce with your colleagues

Have you ever heard of a garden swap? The CALS Wellness Committee is offering to purchase bins, label them, and deliver them to our CALS departments and centers that are interested in having a bin somewhere in their building to allow personnel to share excess produce from their garden or their CSA (community supported agriculture).

Is your department/center interested? If so, please email Kristin Carroll at by Friday, May 24, 2019 to request a bin be ordered for your department/center. Already on the list for a bin are Nutritional Sciences, Biochemistry, Russell Labs, Ag and Applied Economics, Human Resources, and Soils.

Thank you for being willing to share your excess produce with your co-workers!
