Sweet Potato Harvest 2017 at Garden CommonsJoin us in UofL's organic garden and greenhouse for our group workdays! Learn (by doing) how to grow hyper-local, super-delicious vegetables, herbs, and fruits! November 2nd will feature our annual garlic planting & sweet potato harvest party! It is super easy to plant everyone's favorite seasoning and to pull up those giant, delicious orange tubers! We'll start at the Garden Commons next to the Cultural Center at noon and then move over at 1pm to the garden behind Urban & Public Affairs (426 W. Bloom St., behind Bettie Johnson Hall). At both gardens, we will pull sweet potatoes and clear out some space to plant cloves. Come to either garden or both and be ready to fight the vampires!
