Discover campus and community resources for cultivating the art and science of gardening.

Welcome and Introduction

Discover campus and community resources for cultivating the art and science of gardening!  This guide has been created to bring together selected resources that speak to a particular facet--gardening--within the larger, interdisciplinary research interests that are food sovereignty, food systems and food security.

Topics of special interest within this guide include: community and school gardening, urban agriculture/urban farming, horticultural therapy as well as gardening for particular design or intent (such as gardening to attract pollinators or to filter runoff).

While the concerns of this guide have far-reaching implications, it has been my intent (primarily) to identify and to link to programs, projects, and educational tools from within our "neighborhood"--our institution, Wisconsin and the Midwest.
