What a Harvest! Quarter-Acre Garden Does Its Stuff

 

SDI garden

One of several garden plots adjacent to CMN's Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) building is getting an "A+" grade in the green bean category this summer. Rebecca Edler, left, and CMN student Citralina Haruo pose with some of the bounty from a quarter-acre production garden plot on the Keshena campus. Next up on the garden's agenda: corn, squash, cabbage and more.

 

Along with the production garden, CMN students create and maintain a green house and a demonstration garden with research components at the Keshena campus. A small raised urban garden at CMN's Green Bay campus helps provide a control site for research projects, as well as edibles.

 

Edler is the College's Sustainability Coordinator. Haruo, whose tribal affiliations are Oneida, Stockbridge-Munsee and Palauan, is a student in the College's Biological and Physical Science program. She is one of several CMN student interns and volunteers who learn and practice sustainable gardening techniques under Edler's tutelage.
