The UIC Heritage Garden is a project envisioned by students for students. Through the cultivation of garden satellites on the East Campus of UIC, student leaders and gardeners are reconstructing narratives of sustainability that unite biological and cultural diversity. In its first year, the student leaders of the Heritage Garden have enacted horticulture programs, art projects, and story sharing activities while growing cilantro, horseradish, eggplant, peppers, mint, tomatoes, and butterfly milkweed. As the garden continues to expand, holistic student dialogues emerge. Come hear what took root in year one and what’s in the works for the garden in its second season. This Re-Thinking Soup is fully student powered! A guest UIC student will be assisting the Hull-House chef with soup preparations.
