SEWANEE, Tenn. (AP) -- Students are helping create a community garden at Sewanee: University of the South.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports it is the latest reclamation of the land that has been cultivated on and off for over 100 years.
Students were recently helping farm manager Gina Raicovich put down ground cover on a plot of land that used to be a parking lot. The chore came at the end of the first fall harvest at Sewanee's farm, which currently serves as a teaching lab but hopes to provide more opportunities for research as it expands.
The university farmed the land until the 1960s when it was turned into athletic fields. Although a section of land was set aside for a garden, it wasn't until this spring that officials began developing one.
