Graduate community vegetables

At St. Regis, college graduate housing for Clare College, residents transformed a corner of the lawn into three rich beds producing fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs. The beds slowly took shape, starting with the original two and then expanding to a third the following year. A herb spiral is a main feature, providing lots of fresh herbs for residents to share. The garden is a great way for people in the building to get to know each other. Last year when new students and their partners moved into the building at the beginning of the academic year they each received a ‘welcome onion’ grown from the garden.
