Event description

Description

UCLA Staff Assembly hosts regular Learn-at-Lunch events for all UCLA employees. This month we are partnering with the Semel Healthy Campus Initiative Center to learn all about their jane b semel HCI Community Garden and how this special place can enhance your daily life on campus. During this 1-hour session, attendees will receive a tour of the garden and have an opportunity to participate in a Food Closet Harvest, learning proper techniques for harvesting leafy greens that will then be donated to the Community Programs Office Food Closet.

The jane b semel HCI Community Garden provides an on-campus space for the UCLA community to grow healthy food and foster education of urban gardening practices. In partnership with the Semel Healthy Campus Initiative Center, this garden is intended to promote community building and address food insecurity on campus.

The terraced garden sits atop the facility amphitheater, consisting of 31 beds and a small fruit tree orchard which are adopted by student organizations, classes, teams of UCLA staff and faculty, and UCLA extension to grow food and hold workshops. This garden is maintained by the Garden Oversight Committee, a joint committee of the DIG student garden club, HCI researchers, and Recreation staff dedicated to maintaining this hub for experiential learning and dialogue about our food systems.

Whether you are looking to zen out while getting your hands in the dirt or complete our Urban Gardening Certificate Program, our community would love to have you involved!
