Session Description

Ticketed event
Coordinated by the ASEE Community Engagement Division and the Bennion Center at the University of Utah, this project will give ASEE participants the opportunity to develop a community garden with a nearby refugee community. While many refugees have become integral members of the Salt Lake City community, they miss their foods from home. Gardens provide not only a source of pride for the community but also food that is not locally available. The project would consist of four hours of work clearing land, building garden boxes, installing drip lines, and planting seeds. Through this event, we hope to provide an educational experience related to community engagement in addition to providing some service to our host city. Additionally, participants can learn from the Bennion Center and their successful projects.
