While the Office of Student Affairs was going through their storage, they came across a large box of our Club’s items (which have been missing for more than a year and was presumed to have been tossed). Long term active members, were given free t-shirts for their dedication to our club.

We had a big harvest of onions, various varieties of lettuce, kale, and Swiss chard. We even harvested some waxed beans and snap peas.

Our event board is really filling up with the amount of exciting events coming up this semester.
