"Bhide wants students and other community members to have a voice in how the Student Garden evolves. To ensure a continued sense of ownership and engagement, she’s assembling a student advisory board for the garden; the members will have input into future planning and partnerships. Chief among those collaborations are relationships with Penn's Netter Center for Community Partnership, particularly its Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative (AUNI). During the last year, produce from the garden and orchard has been donated to AUNI to be distributed through low-income community-supported agriculture shares. Produce was also donated to be sold at summertime markets run by students at Philadelphia’s Sayre and Robeson high schools."
