The Ogier Gardens will offer the local Jacksonville community the opportunity to learn about the value of growing and preparing their own food as part of their “Taste of Ogier Gardens” fundraiser on Thursday. The fundraiser is taking place from noon to 1:30 p.m at the Ogier Gardens’ grounds just north of Lot 18.

Lunch made with Ogier Gardens’ produce will be provided during the event by Dennis Chan, executive chef and owner of Blue Bamboo Restaurant.

Ogier Gardens allows students to volunteer on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, as well as Wednesday and Friday afternoons. The garden also sponsors the Adopt-a-Bed program, allowing students to “adopt” their own bed at the garden and grow their own food.

“We’re the only university in Florida with this type of program. Our program is unique in that we’re here primarily for the health of the students,” said Ogier Gardens Coordinator Kevin Anderson.

The garden also offers free monthly workshops to the student population at UNF.

Tickets for the “Taste of Ogier Gardens” fundraiser are $50 per person and are available at the event registration page. They must be purchased in advance.
