Fresh vegetables on campus this Wednesday!
Why did the tomato blush?
Because he saw the salad dressing!
The Organic Vegetable Project is a 3-acre plot located on the University Farm. It seeks to grow, evaluate, and identify new crop varieties while bringing together students, faculty members, local farmers, and the community. Stop by and support locally grown, organic Chico State produce! We will be out on the podium next to the BMU, Wednesday from 11-2pm. Check out our Facebook page for more information, recipes, pictures, updates, and vegetable fun facts!
