GU-Appleton Participates in Annual Community Service Day at Urban Farm

Faculty and staff pulling weeds and harvesting lettuce for the Appleton Farmer’s Market

The faculty and staff from GU-Appleton participated in Community Service day on Friday, June 19 by volunteering at Riverview Gardens in Appleton. Altogether, 15 staff and faculty members volunteered their time at the urban garden harvesting and preparing lettuce and spinach to sell at the Appleton Farmer’s Market the next day.

The first order of business was to take a tour of the farm, which was previously occupied by a golf course. The tour guide took the Globe volunteers to the farm area, where other volunteers were already hard at work pulling weeds, watering plants, and chopping wood. The farm is entirely organic, so everyone had to wash their hands before going to the field so the plants don’t get contaminated with chemicals on the hands from lotions, bug sprays, or other contaminants.
