Community Potluck
Friday, Oct. 29
5 p.m.

UNF’s Slow Food Club will host a potluck in the Ogier Gardens where students are welcome to bring a food item, snack or drink of any size. Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization and philosophy that aims to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat. This potluck event is a great way to meet people who are also passionate about food and sustainability.

Harvest Festival
Friday, Nov. 5
11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Join your fellow Ospreys at the Ogier Gardens for the annual Harvest Festival for an afternoon of fall fun. This year’s festival will include live music, free food, crafts, plant giveaways and much more. The Ogier Gardens has also partnered with Campus Canines and Pet Partners to provide therapeutic animal interactions to support the garden’s efforts of being a safe, relaxing space for all.

The Frederick and Ophelia Tate Ogier Gardens is the epicenter of innovative environmental and public health programming on the UNF campus. Located on an acre, the organic gardens feature row crops, a wide variety of fruit trees, raised vegetable beds and peaceful sitting areas.
