Coffee Grounds 4 Plants helps the Sustainable Food Garden in the Gifford Arboretum

Students and faculty came together at UM’s annual Food Day to highlight the need for sustainable, locally-sourced food.  With the world’s population rising and climate change putting pressure on worldwide food security, we must take immediate action! But how can we eat fresh and sustainably in the 305? Does growing your own food seem too good to be true? UM’s Food Garden in the arboretum is available to everyone and is a fantastic way to get involved on campus.  Take the first step toward a plant-based diet, not only for your health, but for the health of the planet.   Please contact for more information!
