Students dig into campus community garden
On a sunny Friday afternoon Oct. 9, Stetson Law students volunteered alongside faculty and staff to help plant a campus community organic garden in the Crummer Courtyard at Stetson’s Gulfport campus.
Thirsty bell peppers, tomatoes, basil, lettuces filled in the garden planters. The students worked quickly in teams with instructions from Food Law Society adviser Professor Lance Long.
The idea for the campus community garden sprouted a few years ago in Gulfport. Last year, the garden project bloomed into a large, edible patch of green in the middle of Stetson’s palm tree-lined Crummer Courtyard.
The garden bounty this year will again be free to the Stetson Law community.
“I chose crops that would thrive is a warm and humid climate. My goal was to choose plants with the best possible yield while requiring the least amount of maintenance,” said student SeanCarlo Lopez, a member of the Food Law Society at Stetson. “Most importantly, I wanted crops students would be inclined to take home with them.”
