Diners at the Center for Community with an interest in fresh food and sustainability might swallow easier knowing that some of the ingredients they’re savoring were grown by CU-Boulder students just yards away.

As a new project this summer, a group of about 12 CU-Boulder student volunteers studying environmental design and environmental studies, led by ENVD Senior Instructor Tori Derr, is cultivating herbs and vegetables in the courtyard garden just outside of the west doors of the C4C dining center. They’re working in partnership with Housing & Dining Services.
