UMaine Greens, a new student group that will manage the University of Maine greenhouse for winter greens production and student research on campus, invites students and the campus community to a Food Day event from noon to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 24 in the gardens near the Littlefield Nursery behind the University Credit Union on Rangeley Road. The purpose is to introduce UMaine Greens and celebrate the new student-managed hoop greenhouse. UMaine Greens, a student unified fees project through the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture, offers students a chance to learn about vegetable growing and season-extension during the school year. The event is free and public.
