The Carrden

The Carrden derives its name from the garden outside Carr Hall, the science building on campus. The Carrden began as a student project in 2015. However, student gardens on Allegheny's campus have been around for over 20 years. We learned about how invasive species affects the Carrden. Also, we learned about how the Carrden affects student life. The Carrden supplies ingredients to the mess halls on campus in addition to various local restaurants. The, we got to harvest carrots from the Carrden. I personally do not have much of a taste for them, however everyone else seemed to enjoy them. I enjoyed being able to see the Carrden in February, on a visit, and now, when it is in full swing. I believe that we all appreciated the effort of the staff of the garden, and the Carrden itself.
