The organic garden and shed adjacent to the preserve suffered no damage from Hurricane Irma. Agroecology Professor and Faculty Mentor Program participant, Krishnaswamy Jayachandran, whose class maintains the garden, said the tarps they used to protect the garden were still in tact when he surveyed the area Thursday, Sept. 14. He’s looking forward to getting his students back outside for their regularly scheduled activities as soon as possible.
