We’re Back!

The bookstore is buzzing, the dining halls are cooking, and students are checking out the library. A new semester has begun, and so has a new season at the Elon Community Garden and Loy Farms! Summer was hot, hot, hot but there was lots of activity both at the garden and farms. See how green and productive the summer has been thanks to our new garden manager, Allison Hren!

Along with some new crops, there is also a new garden studio class led by Professor Michael Strickland. Look out for the next post about what the class has been up to these first few weeks. In the meantime…happy new year y’all!
