Students Work in SWOSU Organic Garden
SWOSU student Murve Thornton of Carson City (NV) works in the Collegiate Activities Board organic garden that has been a student project this summer on the Weatherford campus. Among the products the students have grown include radishes, onions, peas and squash. The students have also grown flowers designed to keep insects away.
The students used shredded cardboard for mulch, which has created cooler ground temps, holds water very well and is economically beneficial. The garden is located at the SWOSU Athletic Complex on Caddo Street next to the baseball and soccer fields.
