The Garden Project in 2017
Fernando Maldonado, the thinker, organizer, and educator who brought the UCI Garden Project into bloom, moved on to other adventures in December. This meant that, like plants in winter, the Garden Project slowed down.
I’m Adonia Lugo, the new co-manager at GSRC, and I’ve spent my first two months here thinking about what it means to build community within and across the six UC Irvine garden spaces. Now that spring is budding across campus, we’re ready to start collaborating again.
