Organic Herb Garden

Previously, UCLA Dining Services and a group of student volunteers maintained an organic herb garden behind Delta Terrace on the Hill.

Growing organic herbs for inclusion in dining halls meals provided awareness about the importance of local and organic foods.

September 2013
Several volunteers came out to harvest and pull weeds on Sept. 26th, resulting in 2 lb. of French basil, 2 lb. of thyme, and 1 lb. of hot chili peppers available for our dining staff! Check out our latest photos.

August 2013 Harvest
Many thanks to Alyssa Curran, UCLA Graduate and former DIG Director, for the August 2013 harvest of lemongrass, thyme, parsley, oregano, and rosemary!

May 2013 Planting
The first planting of May 2013 included rosemary, Thai basil, French basil, Italian basil, sage, Greek oregano, and lemongrass.

Though this space is no longer used for herb planting, UCLA Dining now has Tower Gardens on Sproul Landing Sun Deck! These towers provide the herbs and greens eaten at Bruin Plate. Until then, collaboration is going underway to make use of the land plots behind Delta Terrace.
