Event description

Description

Oak Creek Center for Urban Horticulture is an excellent learning laboratory for sustainable horticultural practices in both rural and peri-urban landscapes. OCCUH continues to be a hotbed of activity during the summer. There are several areas, individuals, and groups that are using the 6.5 acres of space on the SW corner of campus for research -- as well as just plain fun.

Amy Garrett will share information on Dry Land Farming. OCCUH buzzes with activity, and you can get to know the bees with Andony Melathopoulos and learn about backyard bee keeping with Carolyn Breece. Come taste the honey! Cody Buckman and Alan Shay will speak about vegetable production and riparian zone exploration. You can even play croquet on the low input fine fescue plot!

Tour the gardens and research sites and stay for a slice of pizza provided by Papa Murphy’s and baked in our outdoor, wood-fired pizza oven. ($5/donation for pizza)
