A “Living Advertisement” was displayed outside of Lupton Library from Nov15-Dec 15 to increase awareness of the program. The “Living Advertisement” installment, from made recycled lumber from campus construction displayed seedlings donated by Crabtree Farms.

During December, Maggie Sauser was hired as the Assistant Plot Coordinator from a pool of 43 applicants! Also, 8 students were selected to become the first “Student Growers” in the program. Students have interdisciplinary backgrounds and will contribute to the program enormously.

The garden is already gaining some attention and we hope
that it, and all that it encompasses, can really make an impact on
UTC and Chattanooga at large. Here are links to our current publications:
