On November 8th, 30 people gathered in the Pounder Vegetable Garden to learn about and plant garlic—the first of many planting events that are part of The Garlic Project. This project was initiated by Donna Levy, Plantations' Environmental Outreach Coordinator, and Gary Fine of the Durland Alternatives Library at Cornell University. Describing the Garlic Project's mission, Gary Fine said, "In the small picture, it spreads garlic around your community. But in the larger picture, it’s about education and empowerment around how easy and satisfying it is to grow food and be more in charge of what you eat."
