The Colgate Community Garden

The Colgate Community Garden

The leaves have changed and the weather is decidedly cooler, but one thing that is still the same is the many activities and events offered around campus and in the community! Check out some events that you won’t want to miss.

Did you get your daily serving of vegetables? Today (October 21) the Colgate community garden will host a farm stand in the O’Connor Campus Center. Harvested by Colgate students, these fresh and delicious vegetables are ripe and ready. So from 11 to 12:30, come support the local food movement. Stop by and stock up your mini-fridge!

On Tuesday evening at 7:30, Andrew Halliday ’91 will speak about financial wellness in the Ho Science Center. Halliday, president of Halliday Financial, will discuss the process of making investing decisions, the importance of personal investing, and what it all means for college students after graduation. Students of all class years and majors are encouraged to come gain a better understanding of maintaining personal finances. For more information, go here.
