It’s the last week of school and time is slipping past like water through our fingers. The community garden shows that we have come a long way since this year’s harsh winter. Crops are sprouting up everywhere!
The students in Professor Michael Strickland’s garden studio class are finally seeing the rewards of their hard work of planting in the beginning of the semester. Students are able to chose what they want to plant in their personal plots, and there is now a variety of crops.
Just like the school year, the lifecycle of a garden ebbs and flows. It’s not easy to pull up the roots we set down when we arrived at Elon. But, without the changing of the seasons a garden would not be able to flourish and grow into something beautiful and strong.
Congratulations to our seniors graduating next week, especial garden studio TA Andrea Schultz! Thank you to all for your hard work.
